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,

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

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

You have to use the beak lines from an svt on your car. The front lines are entirely different as in our stock lines don't go onto the front of the svt calipers. Rear lines are solid and need a bracket and flex for the movement of the caliper. I've don this swap on two different 08+ cars its easy... 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.

Even tho these say 00-07 with rear discs. I think these may work

Just measure the hose lengths for rear and see how long these are

So the stainless lines meant for an SVT will swap straight on?

The rear lines are too short. They work, but are tight. Get the 6 piece kit where the rear lines are two pieces.

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?

PSUrivie 01-26-2013 11:57 PM

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.
