We're replacing the lines on my car and we got the first on and it's leaking like crazy on the side connecting to the caliper. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Did you make sure to use a new copper washer on both sides of the fitting? The ends need to be tight to the lines as well. I got Fiero Store braided hoses on my car and had no problems with leaks.

Never done stainless brake lines, did you make sure to put on a new copper ring?

I bought those too, then I thought better of it and got regular rubber hoses. They have a much bigger connector on the caliper end. Otherwise you could tighten the hell out of them. Sometimes the connection face on the caliper is freshly ground on remans, maybe you need to grind the connection face. You're using new copper washers aren't you?

Yeah, we used new washers on both sides. I believe it wasn't tight enough, but we thought it was. It was a silly mistake, but thanks guys!
