Adding Goodrich SS Brake Lines


Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow RennTech members

I am planning to replace my stock brake lines with the Goodrich SS lines. I have searched but have not found any DIY info on this other than bleeding the brakes. Are there any Gotchas to be aware of when removing the the brake lines and replacing with new? I have the brake bleeding tools and am comfortable with that process. I have seen the fantastic DIY on the bleeding process on this site so I feel like this should not be a big job but after reading some of the info there have been warnings of ABS resets and such that have me concerned. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Bill.

Same procedure as bleeding your brake system w/ the exception that you remove/replace your brake hoses. I would suggest you check for leaks when your finished (duh).

They look good and are probably more 'stress resistant' but in everything I've read they offer no improvement regarding braking performance.

Shocking that an aftermarket "upgrade" part doesn't make a difference...:clapping:

Thanks for the reply. Disappointing to hear no improvement. I understood they offered better pedel pressure when brakes were hot at track events. We will see. NASA-SE event in two weeks. Still fun to work on the car.

They do improve pedal pressure and feel, particularly under hard braking, but many think that SS lines will actually improve how the car brakes, which they cannot do. Response tends to be subjective, most like the change...............

Let us know how it goes... I intend to do the same soon. Some don't like SS lines because you cannot see wearing of the hose under the SS braids... I just replace them every 50k miles anyways as a preventative measure vs. waiting for one to fail/leak on my prior cars.
