I've had two. Not worth it. Just giving my opinion, don't force yours down minetodd tce said:PM sent to you as requested.
And I have no idea what this man is talking about: "and a solonied brake line"
"Whole brake kits are really expensive for what you get." That's certainly a subjective comment. You might feel differently if you had one.

Serious race car owners have used flexible brake hoses of extruded Teflon for decades. They are protected against abrasion and swelling by a sheath of tightly braided stainless steel wire. The resistance to "line swell" both improves the firmness or "feel" of the brake pedal and reduces the time required for effective pressure to reach the brakes and begin to slow the car. The decreased system reaction time reduces stopping distance in emergency situations-- as much as 18 feet at 80 miles per hour.
Earl's HYPERFIRM® brake hoses not only meet all D.O.T., T.U.V., and J.W.A. standards and specifications for flexible brake hoses, they are individually inspected and testing before shipment. Earl's HYPERFIRM® hoses are the only Teflon stainless steel brake hoses to successfully pass all tests at a D.O.T.-contracted test laboratory. Each package contains front and rear lines.
You're not the only one! Perhaps given the clarification, he meant a "solid" brake line?? I dunno - just a guess!todd tce said:And I have no idea what this man is talking about: "and a solonied brake line"
It's steel, some companies make solonied locks, used the wrong wordsCottyGee said:You're not the only one! Perhaps given the clarification, he meant a "solid" brake line?? I dunno - just a guess!
BTW, I'm in Phoenix also, and would be interested...
Baer Claw for a 94 Z28..those sure stopped well but I didn't think they were worth the price.todd tce said:Ok, we'll cut you some slack and assume you're from out of town....at the least. It's all good. Curious to the exact kits and applications you had too.
I think what our English challenged friend here is trying to say is that Stainless Steel flex lines are a fine addition to your car. I won't disagree with that. In many cases however this, some zoomy looking rotors and sticky pads are all that folks need. In other cases there are those vehicle owners who look for a bit more; be it size, look, or thermal capacity for harder use applications. Like choosing your car or tires its all about the options.
And I'm certainly not forcing it down anyones throat. I can't, it's not done yet! lol
I'm out, thanks guys. You can PM me if you'd like to talk more on it or stopy by the shop for some touchy-feely time with parts.
