Stainless steel brake line questions.

I'm getting ready to buy a set of stainless steel brake lines and I basically want the best out there. What does everyone suggest is the best and why. Thanks!

Goodridge and RacingBrake are both very good.

You will at the very least have to bleed the lines to get fluid into the empty new lines.

This in turn may require adding fluid to the reservoir.

If the fluid is a couple years old, you might as well replace it since you will be bleeding anyway.

You will have to add some fluid regardless, so it would be the best time to upgrade to some DOT4 fluid. We use Motul RBF600 and Goodridge lines here in the shop and on all of our own cars.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler
