Braided brake lines


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

I'm doing a complete brake system refresh on my '01S with 107k miles (and more than a few track days). Looking at braided lines to replace the 13 year old factory rubber lines on the car and I noticed that prices are all over the map. $122 to over $400. The car is my daily driver now - no more track duty.

What is the collective wisdom on #1, braided lines in general, and #2, $100 lines vs $400 lines for a peak time commute daily driver?

All questions. comments, opinions, recommendations welcome!

TIA,

Highlander

We like them and use them extensively. For a street car, you want DOT approved units; our preference is for Goodridge:

DOT approved, great warranty if you ever damage one, retails in $120-130 range but do go on sale from time to time.

Thanks Jeff! Those are the $122 lines I was referring to! :cheers:

I'll add them to my growing list of parts for my refurb.

Hey Loren, really like the "Mark Solved" button. Really improves the effectiveness of the board!!!!

For a very long time there were no DOT-approved metal braid covered lines. Then, technology was developed to coat them with plastic to permit printing DOT information on them.

Not really correct; DOT and TUV approved lines have been around for a very long time, and they do not have to be plastic coated to be DOT. Goodridge makes lines with and without coatings, both are DOT/TUV, and both have tags on them for the approvals.
