Also try Raptorracing here on TN. Groupbuy is gone, but I'm sure you can still snaggle a set

Dangit I don't know how that happened, I must have accidentally hit post and now it won't let me edit it.
Anyway, I like to recommend SS lines for 2 reasons:

1 - it forces you to flush your brake fluid, which most people never do over the life of the car. This is also probably where most of the increased pedal stiffness comes from as well.

2- New good stainless lines are always better than old rubber lines, especially ones over 8
years old. I've seen first hand some old rubber lines with so many deposits in them the ID is reduced to 1/4 of the size, and the calipers don't retract as easily.

Now, don't go expecting your stopping distance to shorten or anything magical like that, but they can't hurt, so long as you get a decent brand of lines that doesn't fall apart. You're on your own for finding those.

^why not just replace the old rubber lines with new rubber lines to use for the next 8 years and save the extra money.

for the easy going/regular driver that would be the more cost effective option for sure. And you still need to clean out the system, or at least part of the system when installing any type of brake line.

If you're some sort of enthusiast that may go on a track part time or drive a lot of hilly roads / mountains, then ss lines should be your replacement instead.

but its really not necessary to have SS lines on a family car like the camry under normal circumstances.

because i went to autozone and they charge 26.99 for the fron and 24.99 in the back which comes out to about 100-110 i think.. i figure i might as well get the ss lines off ebay that i showed in the first post of this thread and are the same price is i get new rubber ones,... so why not get the ss ones..

right????

That's exactly why. Granted, I'm more used to dealing with BMW prices (crazy, just crazy), but its cheaper to go with a name brand SS line set than to get OE rubber simetimes. Its RIDICULOUS if you compare prices to the dealer.

abew330 01-17-2007 02:24 PM

right .. i went to toyota to get a new headlight and they told me 350 for left and 250 for the right

i turned around and walked out
