Brake lines...which front and rear?

I purchased Racing Brake Stainless Steel Brake Line Kit BL911.

My question is, do the longer ones go in the front or rear? Before I get bashed, I haven't taken the wheels off and looked at them yet. I know that would probably answer my question.

Once you remove the OEM brake lines you'll see which ones go where. Though if I remember correctly the RB ones were labeled, could be wrong though.

pretty sure the rb lines are labeled. no bash necessary. RB likes to label everything front or rear, left or right

Thanks for the info, I didn't really look closely at the lines yet either, just noticed the different lengths.

It says in the instructions on the back, but 20 ft/lbs is good.

Best regards,

This is pretty simple, but may help line up wrenches, etc.

Are you putting in some DOT 4 fluid while you're at it? Might as well.
