How much coolant to drain??

I have my egr coolers coolant flow bypassed, but I found a different hose set up that I like better to bypass it, it's a formed silicone hose that starts as a 1" ID hose, then turns into a 3/4" ID I would only need 2 I want to use spring corbin clamps instead of the worm drives I am using now...would I be able to just drain the radiator until empty so I can avoid a shower in red antifreeze? Or would i need to drain from another place to get rhe coolant lower than that?? In a stock truck it would be just like replacing the bottom egr cooler and top egr cooler hoses...

Thanks in advance!
