What should I be doing first?
Slotted Rotors or Braided Lines?

judt fitted as set to my ef xr6, I tells ya, the pedal is solid as a rock and the thing feels like it ill just about stand on the nose, the brakes are phenominal. don't hesitate about this upgrade.


good to see you like them. it does make a BIG difference.

EA-ED have 5 lines
2 front
3 rear 1 on each side diff to caliper and 1 from the body to the diff

we have these in stock and ready to go.


I got a set for the NF and I have to add my :D :D :D :D
The car always felt like there was a bit of air in the lines under heavy braking (short of the ABS coming in!) But now the peddle feels great..
Definately a must if you like Stopping after Going!!!! :lol:

Basically under pressure your rubber hoses can expand - with braided lines the braided metal stops the hose from expanding thus forcing the brake fluid towards the calliper giving better response

What's the deal with getting a set of these posted across the city?
I figure postage would be cheaper then driving across these days.. :P

well got my set of 4 this morning, and as i havn't had a look at the lines on the car yet are they all the same length on a 94 EF?
as the ones i got are all the same length.

i assume by the look of the lines they are pretty easy to install.
