Re: brake lines

Got mine at quadretec, but most places are close to the same price. I used them because I ordered other pieces and didn't want multible shipping charges to save a dollar or two.

Re: brake lines

Not trying to jack the thread, but,..
What's the difference between DOT and non for braided lines?
Are the DOT lines the ones which have the clear sleeve over the braid?

There may well be several different types of brake lines but the two that I know of are DOT (double flared fittings) and the type the race people use with AN type fittings. The two fitting types cannot be mixed because they will not mate up and seal correctly, the AN style are not approved for public highway use. So you really only have one choice of fitting type if you still drive on public highways.

Good Luck

Re: brake lines

I picked up a Goodridge line from four wheel drive Hardware when I tore my rear line apart. I was impressed with its construction. The rear hose has fittings at both ends. You can replace the hose without replacing the two blocks -- if you can get a spare hose.

Re: brake lines

How good are the Goodridge brake lines with a 4.5" lift?
Is there enough room for flex? [img]images/graemlins/scs.gif[/img]
