Buy Brake Lines

Solid metal brake lines are typically used along the underbody of a vehicle. They run from the master cylinder or ABS unit to about the edge of the inner fender. Flexible brake hoses are needed at the brake calipers, which have to move with the suspension. The flexible hoses are short, and run from the caliper to the solid brake line. Car manufacturers usually install more cost-effective rubber brake hoses from the factory. These rubber hoses can degrade over time. Eventually, they may swell, crack, or leak due to age.

Poor Braking Performance: The vehicle suddenly takes noticeably longer to stop. A brake line may be damaged or restricted. Other brake components can also cause poor braking performance. This may include the master cylinder, brake calipers, or worn brake pads and rotors.

Brake Warning Light Is On: The brake warning light can either indicate there is a loss of brake fluid, or the parking brake is engaged. Verify the parking brake is off and check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir. If the fluid is low, inspect for leaks.

Visible Brake Line Damage: Brake line damage may or may not result in brake fluid leaks. Corrosion on metal brake lines can weaken them over time, causing them to leak. Metal brake lines could also be bent or dented from road debris, resulting in a brake fluid restriction. Cracking or splitting of rubber brake hoses can occur with age, causing them to leak. Swelling may also be visible on rubber brake hoses, causing a loss of braking performance.

Solid metal brake lines are not repairable and must always be replaced when they fail. Metal brake lines require fabrication before they can be replaced. They are sold in bulk rolls and must be straightened, bent, and flared to fit before installing. Research your vehicle to purchase the correct diameter brake lines and correct size fittings.

Most modern vehicles have four brake lines. A brake line runs from the master cylinder to each wheel. Each wheel has a brake hose that connects the metal line to the brake caliper. Brake hoses are needed to allow movement with the vehicle suspension. Older vehicles may have a single brake line to the rear axle that has a T-split to each rear wheel.

Your car's brake system relies on hydraulic pressure to be able to work. It's impossible to compress a liquid, and when you step on the brake pedal the piston in the master cylinder puts brake fluid under pressure. That pressure is then transmitted through the brake lines and the caliper's (or wheel cylinder's) piston is activated, pushing the brake pads toward the rotor and slowing your vehicle.

Obviously, your brake lines need to be pretty solid and robust to handle that kind of pressure. Unfortunately if you live in a state that gets a lot of snow, salt and road chemicals are going to go after your brake lines (and frame, and floor pans, and rocker panels) like a school of piranha on a cow carcass. Often on an old beater or a barn find, the brake lines can be pretty deteriorated and will need to be replaced. We're going to talk about how that's done.

Remove the old brake line at the master cylinder. It's best to hit it with a penetrant first, let it sit for a bit and then carefully remove the nut with a flare wrench. You may need to give the wrench a slight tap with a hammer to break the nut loose.

Remove the old brake line at any junctions and at the hose fittings that actually go to the wheel cylinders. After that, you should be able to pull the brake lines out completely. You'll want your eye protection for this, as the old lines are likely to be pretty crusty and decrepit.

Take measurements of how long your new brake lines should be and cut the new brake line stock to the proper length. The cutting tool has a little disc like a pizza cutter; clamp the tool onto the brake line at the desired spot and start spinning the tool around, gradually tightening it as you go. In a minute or two you should have a fairly clean cut.

Using the old brake line as a template, make some very light bends in the new line in the appropriate places. You'll want to do any more radical bends as you install the line; a pre-bent brake line that doesn't fit properly can make the rest of installation a real headache. Instead, you'll need the line bending tool for the bigger bends; it gently forms the line around a smooth surface.

Reattach the fittings at the junctions, brake hoses and master cylinder, refill the master cylinder, find an assistant and get ready to start bleeding the brakes to evacuate the air from the newly installed lines.

While it is often easier to detect a problem with your brake pads or rotors, there are still noticeable symptoms of a brake system in need of new lines. From behind the wheel, you might notice that the brake pedal is soft or spongy as the leaking fluid creates uneven pressure in the brake system. On hard stops, you may not notice as much braking power when you really slam the brakes. Of course, the real indication of lines that require replacement is through visual inspection.

There are three common types of brake lines found on the market. Galvanized steel remains the most popular type of brake line found on passenger vehicles. Some manufacturers are making the switch to PVF (polyvinyl fluoride) coated lines that offer an extra layer of resistance to sand, salt, and road pollution. This black outer layer can pose a challenge to the DIY mechanic as it is more prone to flaking at cuts around your fittings, which can result in leaks. Finally, nickel-copper lines sit at the top of the pricing grid, however, loyal users of NiCopp find it easier to manipulate, and it never corrodes due to salty road conditions. Many users state that the added cost of NiCopp is well worth the investment, especially if you intend on keeping your vehicle for many more years.

If you own a daily driver with 100,000 miles on the odometer and want to give it another 100k, steel remains the most cost-effective brake lines available. Should you live in an area where salt is used to melt snow and ice on the roads, you may wish to step up to the PVF lines, but be prepared for more of a challenge during installation. If durability and reliability are most important to you, NiCopp can be worth your money.

What about your street rod that you take to the track? Braided steel lines are the go-to option for weekend racers, as it is better able to resist extreme temperatures and is more difficult to damage when the run goes wrong. Ceramic and Teflon applications are also available.

If you are buying a roll of brake line instead of opting for an assembled brake line kit, it cannot be overstated that the flared fitting is the challenge of the day for DIY mechanics. Make sure to buy new or borrow a quality brake flaring kit and brake cutting tool. A smooth and properly sized flare guarantees a better seal to the distributor and master cylinder. Using a cheap tool can leave burrs, kinks in the line, or an improperly sized connection, which may send your car back to the shop.

I bought these to replace my technafit SS lines that were showing a bit of age. The technafit lines worked great, and I had them for 4 years about 30k miles. The only problem I had with is that the mounting blocks on the line wouldnt move easily to take any twist out of the lines. No matter how many times I loosened and reinstalled them, there was always some small bind in the line. These stop tech lines are made much better. The braiding is nice and thick, and the mounting blocks are easy to move and accommodate any angle for the line. The front lines come with new clips for the strut and chassis mount, but the rears do not so you will reuse the OEM clip. They also come with tight fitting rubber nipples that you can fit on either end of the brake line to prevent so much dot 3 from bleeding out during the swap. Between the small details like the moveable mount blocks, the nipple stops, and the clips, I would highly recommend these over other brands. The others are good, but stoptech obviously cares about details. There is a reason Damond sells these and not the others.
