The stocko rubber lines have metal spiral round them, should I remove this and fit to the new braided lines?

I did when i changed my lines to braided, as i thought what the hell if they are there for stocko's then can't hurt to have the added wear protection.

The rear hoses expand that much? Mine are a really really loose fit around the hose. How come the front ones arn't fitted with them to reduce expansion? I think I will fit them to the new lines just to protect them, with brakes it's worth being careful as if they f**k up then there's trouble aye!

Yeah i thought the outer coil was to protect from rubbing/damage from stones. If the lines are able to expand that much id doubt very much they would be legal. The last thing Ford would want is legal proceedings from Brake fail due to under engineered brake lines.

so why protect only the rear lines with it then?
dunno just repeating what I was told, very typical on Jags, thought the same principal applied here

the same logic in you've used could be used to say "why only stop the rear lines from expanding past that point and not the fronts?'
I guess they thought that the rear lines had a greater chance of rubbing on the rear suspension set up. I dunno. Either way Ford thought they were necxessary, so I have refitted them on my new lines - with brakes it just ain't worth risking!

'cos the rear lines are lower, and the fronts are higher, the rear of the car is more open to damage, where as the front is more enclosed.

also I seem to have a lot more wear on my rear inner guards than my fronts!


SaKaTa's are crap
