PSUrivie The ST lines are the 4 piece SS kit. The ST rear brakes are 10" while the SVT are 11". That's why the rear lines are tight when using the SVT rear kit.

Get these and then get some brake line tube. make a 2" tube and flair the ends. That'll give you enough length for the rear.

You can see how tight the are in the rear:

I really like what you did. Its so simple, yet elegant. But it got me thinking. Won't the ST lines fit?

Just use stainless lines meant for an svt I don have stainless lines just stock lines from an svt and they fit as they shoul after you swap out the banjo style fitting on the 08+ fronts.
So the stainless lines meant for an SVT will swap straight on?

PowerFocer I heard they have a slightly different setup as far as the lines go. I maybe wrong though. (Hopefully)

sleepyboy I imagine that the SVT SS brake lines should work for it?

SS brake lines for 08+ with SVT brakes?

As the title says; I cannot find any SS brake lines for the 08+ that is getting SVT brakes. Anybody have an idea which ones I should use?


Thanks in advance,
