I need to change brake fluid and some new pads up front wouldn't hurt either so a friend recommended I upgrade to the stainless steel brake hoses. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for a good place to buy these ? I haven't done much looking around, offhand I know Zip sells a set for $119.
I know it's not much $ but just curious anyone who has done this upgrade was it worth it?
I have read these should give a firmer pedal, did you actually feel a difference ?
thanks

It is worth it Since you are changing pads.. I did not feel that much of a difference, but I am happy with them.. I have the Russell lines, I got at Pep Boys in 1995 I think.. I paid $100 I think

I put them on my 72 a couple of years ago, and I believe the pedal feel was better. The 95 will get them this next winter.:cheers:
