Anyone using SS lines?

I was surprised after searching how little there was on stainless steel brake lines. Are these not a popular mod for Preludes? I was wondering if anyone had installed any Goodridge or Russell stainless steal lines. Any issues with fitment? Were the crush sleaves included in the kit?

Re: Anyone using SS lines?

not something i would be afraid of buying goodridge and russel both have good reps and have guarantees with their products. always a good buy for the price, ss look good and do their job well... if u r trying for better braking i may look at bigger better rotors and calipers rather than ss but ss is in the equation for great braking performance and response

Re: Anyone using SS lines?

The only issue with running steel braided lines is that every other car you drive with rubber lines will feel inferior to your foot...well worth the $100 i spent on my Russel lines

Post how easily (or not) they were to install. They should go on easily. I'm not so much interested in better braking than I am about firming up the stock peddal feel.

Re: Anyone using SS lines?

Stainless steel lines won't give you better braking, they'll give you great pedal feel. Ease of installation? Very simple, only thing is too bleed out the arse load of air after tossing your rubber lines... Which isn't bad by the way

Re: Anyone using SS lines?

I was actually shopping around for those today. Made an offer on an ebay auction for some Goodridge ones. He has them at $105 + $9 shipping OBO, so I offered $86 to make $95/shipped. Hopefully I get them, the next cheapest I found the set for was $111/shipped.

How much are Russels?

I have no idea, I have never heard of Russells. In the UK the two main brands are Goodridge and HEL.

Re: Anyone using SS lines?

What about techna-fit??? read somewhere the company was started by someone who was at goodridge... If russells are as good as goodridge, I might get them as they are cheaper (about the same price as techna-fit).

quoting myself...

I read on another forum (not sure where at the moment.. I have it saved on another computer) that SS brake lines for the lude are too short and pinch when installed with legend calipers... I don't plan on doing the legend upgade yet, as I got a great deal on some brakes, but I wanted to know if anyone had this problem since I want to do this upgrade down the road???...

If I need to I can buy non-specific brake lines that are a touch longer.....

anyone know???

I'm using Goodridge SS lines in my other car and the response is definitely better. No mushy pedal feel.

Re: Anyone using SS lines?

I've been using Russell's for 4 years maybe? They work fine. As for changing them, it depends on how rusty your hard lines are. It can be difficult to break the fitting loose. I've quit trying line wrenches and just go straight for the vice grips
