Stock brake lines on 1LE and ZL1

Are they stainless?

If not, any idea why?

I will say that im sure glad i put stainless on my ride.I just had my 1st track day since the change.There is a big difference,there is still a little sponginess,but 99% better.Im assuming the 1% would be the anti lock brake system working?

The factory lines are in fact rubber... Stainless lines make a huge difference and I suggest them to anyone doing performance driving. I prefer the Goodridge and Pedders lines myself.

Kind regards,
