    Donít forget to get a bleeder (or a friend to help you).

    Lines were pretty easy to change, assuming you donít have a Canadian car with rusty fittings...

    Yes on the brake fluid. Good tip on cleaning the lines to avoid dirt in the lines and buying a brake service kit 1 from ECS to help. I also have a friend to help me. Thanks for the advice and I will let you know how it turns out.

    Oh, I forgot: the car is a originally from Burbank Ca, and now lives in Texas... no rust.

    Braided (Stainless) Steel Brake Lines?

    I have used ECStuning on several cars and really like them.

    I ordered Stoptechs for the ZHP because ECS didnít have their brand immediately available and i had to take the car out of town due to a family emergency.

    The stoptechs are nice but one of the lines on the front is bending almost like it is slightly twisted causing the rubber grommet to continuously come out of the brake line bracket attached to the shock.

    I used a twist tie to keep it in place however i find it strange this is occurring on the car.

    Maybe i have to go back and re-install the line?
