Sorry for the lack of LBC content, but hopefully the concept is the 
I was replacing brake shoes on my wife's Honda today, and I popped 
one of the brake pistons out of its bore.  I put it back in, but 
figured I introduced some air into the system.  Sure enough, when I 
got everything put back together, the pedal was slightly spongy.  The 
hobby shop closed before I could investigate further, but I'm 
planning on bleeding the brakes tomorrow when I go back to do the oil 
change.  Will just bleeding the brakes be enough to remove the air 
from the piston bores, or is there a different procedure for this?
Thanks a million,
Scott Gardner
