G'day all
My original steel brake line busted. I'm been looking for replacement parts..I don't know which one is better, the original steel brake line or the flexible lines?? It will be good if you guys can give me some ideas.

Why did it bust did it rust out? Steel is good and low cost but it f you have a rust problem then there is stainless steel lines and the copper clad too. Good luck :nod:

Hi, I've been known to use replacement lines cut and fit with compression fittings. We all know this is a no-no, and against DOT, but I've never had a problem. Look for rust at all the clamps. Good luck
