As far as I know its the same concept regardless of the vehicle. The hardware might be a little different or in different positions but its not to difficult to figure it out. I've bled my WK , a Patriot, and a Dodge Ram, and my honda 600 rr bike and they were pretty easy to figure out. I'm pretty sure the pump you connect to the nipple is a universal size. Correct me if I'm wrong here but I've only seen one size ...even the brakes on my bike used the same one.

I may have missed this while skimming though... but have you had your brakes bled to say that it doesn't help... Sure they may be different... I have an 05 3.7 and and 06 4.7. The 05 is mushy as hell right now but when we bought it was firm as my 06 is also they have about the same amount of miles maybe 5,000 diff.
