Hey guys,

The past few days i have been converting fro drums to disk using a kit from The Right Stuff Detailing ( http://www.getdiscbrakes.com/afxdc51dsx). So far very happy with everything that came with the kit.

However while undernearth i noticed some of the brake lines are pitted and should really be replaced since im doing all this line. Particularly the main line running to the rear T. Does anyone have any experience with braided steel lines? I'd like to not have to worry about getting all the bends exact but not sure if i should just go with flexible braided lines or just the pre-bent replacements.

Here's an example of the sizes and types that i have in mind

Thanks

If your worried about corrosion, why not go to stainless steel brake lines. Inline tube should have what you need.

Those coverings on brake lines look good but won't really stop the corrosion process. Brake fluid in the line corrodes the line from the inside while moisture in the air and salt will still attack the outside steel of brake line as the coating wears off, cracks, or breaks off..

Why not just buy the stainless brake lines that Right Stuff Detailing sells? I bought my stainless brake lines from them and they seem to have the correct bends in the correct places and fit just fine!
