Better than old rubber ones! (Dunno if they're any better than new rubber ones.)

Most notice that it stiffens up the brake pedal/better pedal response. I have nothing to complain about with mine. Just make sure you put the right one on the right side.

What I got from reading these threads is that there is no consensus on Stainless Steel braided brake lines.

For what it's worth I've had them on my GT for about 15 years with no issues.

The only way to go.

They are a little more expensive but better than anything else you can install. The Pedal on a 4 wheel disc system will be firmer and they are stronger.

It is a no brainer bolt on.

Just make sure to get a quality part like Russell or similar.

My Fiero has had stainless braided brake lines since 2004. No complaints here.

I have also been running the braided SS brake lines for about 10 years with no issues at all.

I have been running the original rubber brake lines ever since I have owned the car with no problems.

Sold by TFS and other vendors just to make money. TFS BTR and others often sell many parts that are crap or illegal to use on the street.

SS Compared to New OE type hoses you can't tell from foot effort and newer SAE J1401 hose (like use in Raybestos PG Plus and other Pro Grade lines) have even more strength and cancel most claims of SS makers and vendors. SAE standards are used worldwide and many are in FMVSS CMVSS(Canada) rules.

If SCHAUMBURG is in a EU or whatever county then may not be legal to run on the street and can fail inspections etc for non OE type brake lines because DOT testing for SS hoses and other aftermarket parts often does not apply in other countries.

I install Raybestos PG Plus and others on many cars and Never have problems. I was a mechanic years ago and never install SS lines on customers cars because of legal problem if they have a crash. X brand claiming DOT106 is BS. SS suppliers said they pass DOT106 testing but means nothing when you add brackets etc to control where hoses can rub. Most buyers do not understand how tests are done and by who. (Clue: Not US Gov except maybe to recall parts.) Many SS makers Void their Warranty when buyer use whatever to control rubbing etc.

If its the Illinois SCHAUMBURG then there are no inspections.

For the record, I used Raybestos hoses on my car; bought them at Advance and they fit right. Made in USA too.
