Anyone have any recommendations for braided brake hoses?
Wow! Really! I didn't know that. Nor have I ever heard of that happening. I'll have to take a look at that. Good on ya for that!:surprise:not wishing to put you off the idea, but take a look at braided line failures. Specifically where&why they typically fail.
it was enough to put me off using them.
HEL and goodridge seem to be the best out there. HEL were the ones i was specifically looking at.
I thought we need 6 lines? Do you by any chace have a link ?All seem to be pretty much the same from what I gathered when researching them. Just make sure you get a 5 line pack preferably with plastic coating to prevent rust. Mine were £80 new from eBay, made a massive difference to braking, half pedal now means full lock. Took a while to get used to but probably one of the best mods I've done.

My apologies yes it's 6. You need the 2 extra for the rears leading from the steel fixed lines to the connecting boxes.I thought we need 6 lines? Do you by any chace have a link ?

Job is a bit fiddly, and I can't emphasise enough the importance of a decent flare nut spanner for this one as my stock lines were incredibly seized and corroded, and if just using a normal spanner I would have rounded off the old ones instantly.
I actually had to heat mine and hit the spanner with a hammer to loosen then enough to get some WD40 in there.
Glad I did it though as the results are imediate and massive compared to the 10 year old rubber lines I had. Make sure u have a good littre of proper brake fluid as well to really flush it through. I lost quite a bit of fluid whilst doing mine.

Thank You all for your input. I finally got the HEL kit with 6 lines and along with EBC yellowstuff, Motul 600 oil, and the HEL kit. Very impressed with this setup.Using HEL for the last 4 years on FN2 no issues, using HKS on our 1.8 for the last 6 years no issues.
