Steel Braided Brake Hose

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of changing my perfectly good brake hose with the steel braided ones, has anyone tried them and any difference from the change?

there should be a total of 4 hoses in the 987. correct me if i am wrong?

Correct (4) :)

You will notice a slightly stiffer brake pedal. Make **** sure you buy DOT approved brake lines. There are cheaper versions on the market that do not have bend restrictor's were the crimp occurs onto the actual braided line. This is were line fatigues and cracks without bend restrictor's.

The biggest benefit: when you are playing on the track or running around in the mountains, the heat soaked rubber lines swell and help cause the spongy pedal feel that does not build confidence in a driver!
