bpowa I got mines with my lift.. too lazy to install them due to being messy.

Triple88a yes thats normal, thats the reason why you're suppose to loosen the cap when you're doing your brakes.

Gilez I just replaced my front brakes and rotors, and while I was compressing the piston in the caliper it leaked brake fluid out through the cap on the fluid fill. There was clearly too much fluid in the container, but I wonder if it should leak out like that. I guess the extra fluid has to go somewhere. Anyone else experience any thing like this??

I think if there is a mechanical improvement as a result of the stainless lines it is probably worth doing since it is really not that hard to do. The other ideas are certainly useful and interesting if you did not care about the loss of fade.

nicolas-eric i needed only 25 minutes to install the SS front brake lines. in the rear i don´t need a longer line because i still have stock control arms.

Triple88a Dont forget to bleed them (step 14).. thats about it. Use new copper crush washer.

The bleeding is whats gonna take a while.

Longer Brake Line Install Enquiry

I am planning on replacing my brake line when I do my lift, and I have checked out this site (http://www.4x4xplor.com/TJ-brakelines.html). It looks like a good write up. Does any one have any other words of wisdom or tricks of the trade that should be considered with this project. It looks like it could be a messy job.
