They're all pretty much the same. Some brands are offered in different colors, though.

If money is no concern go for super duper lines - titanium - a little more than twice the cost of SS

Oh, wait. I forgot who was asking. Forget the titanium Kev.

And borrow a brake bleeder from someone. That will make the whole process a lot easier. I'm actually thinking of installing speed bleeders next time I flush my brake lines.

Translation:

Get a color you like.

A dual line kit runs two lines from your master cylinder down to the calipers - one line for each caliper, instead of the one you have now that runs to one caliper and then branches over to the other caliper.

The banjo bolt is the bolt with holes that fastens the SS line to the master cylinder and caliper. You can get them with bleeder valves on them so you can bleed the brakes at the bolt location instead of at the caliper - supposed to be easier to bleed.

The braiding on SS lines can be abrasive when they come into contact with other material. you can get them coated with a colored material that will protect both the lines and the soft parts near the lines.

Mity vac FTW!


Speed bleeders don't do a whole lot. If you use a hose + jar, just open the bleeder up, pump till you see clean fluid w no bubbles* then close her off. You won't get much, if any backwashed into the line. I do this alllll day long at the shop. When I run into troubles or install new lines, I use the mity vac to get the fluid going. Then do the hose + jar.




*Sometimes when you open up the nipple, air leaks through the threads. So you constantly get little tiny bubbles. I've seen this a few times in rear brakes. It's not uncommon.

Drew, I know you got a kiddo on the way, but that don't mean we can't hit up Leavenworth on a random whim!

I'm thinking sometime next month we should go to LWizzle.
