Top 2 are the same and are highly recommended. I have them on the back of my car. The 3rd are no name and look crappy, stay way from those.

^ what he said....but no-name ss brake lines are hard to judge. they're usually good, and are just ss lines with custom banjo connections and cut different lengths for for different cars, but again...hard to say unless you know somebody who's ordered the same ones and actually seen/touched/tested

Thanks Bro. Stoptech for the BBK.

No it does not make it harder to push, its just a more solid pedal feel, i cant really explain it. If you get SS lines for all 4 than you will see a BIG difference and see what im talking about.

K- SPort Coilovers dropped a little over 3 inches :) . 18" BBS RK's are the rims. ANything else you wanna know just PM me :) .

i got the G-stops all around in mine. Just had them installed recently. I bought mine off of Tire Rack though. Same product. Great feeling, no fade. got rid of low pedal/mushiness when driving hard in the mountains.

2 front 2 back thats it. pretty easy. only prob u may run into is that the ss lines are 3/4" longer so make sure they dont rub tires/struts or get twisted in any way.

My $.02
Complete waste of money. If you need the bling buy 'em with the teflon lining. Worth the extra $.

^ I totally disagree


having recently (end of summer) installed my ss brakelines before supercharging, they make a world of a difference....you can lock up your brakes with no effort at all now, and the pedal feel is much more responsive

the only thing that I don't like about them is that since my car doesn't have abs, the fact that I can easily lock up my brakes isn't always a good thing

easily the best bang for the buck for a braking system- my x-drilled/slotted roters, performance pads, etc didn't make this big of a difference by themselves

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.
