Ok I installed my braided lines on my car a couple weeks ago. Took me a little while to get around to posting the photo's. Just happened that the day after I made the pieces to make it work an SVT focus came into the shop. It already had braided lines on it. I took pictures of it as well to show what the setup is suppose to look like. I basically just copied the path that the single rubber line takes that comes with the svt rear brake kit for my car.

This is the SVT Setup:


This is the route that the rubber line that comes with the SVT rear kit takes:

I made up a couple of hard lines to connect the two pieces of the braided rear brake line. They are just under 3" long and have a bubble-flare on both ends.

Connecting the two lines together makes it a little longer than the rubber line but it works well:

Once installed on the vehicle it looks like:

It is working great on my car. Had I taken a look at the SVT focus setup before I had already made up my lines I might have tried to follow the route that it was intended to go. However my way is definetely easier. Hope this helps anyone who had questions about the installation of the two piece setup on a vehicle that did not come equiped with the hard line.

Russell braided stainless steel lines. Part#693370. It is for the SVT focus or anyone who has put rear disc brakes on their focus.

Since you have an SVT focus you should already have the hard line shown in the first two pictures.

do you think your going to need prop valves since doing the swap to disk brakes. I'm thinking about it myself, seems like a little too much breaking in the rear.

I did the SVT brake swap back in 2004. I also did stainless lines with mine at the same time.

1.) No need for a proportioning valve, they work just fine
2.) 20-30% better braking than stock, nice improvement over stock for not a fortune, plus you can still fit 16" rims for winter tires on the car ( I do).

I don't have ABS or traction control EITHER... Learn to apply proper pressure to the pedal...I'm not trying to be cruel, I'm serious. I HATE ABS with a passion, I could have bought my focus wagon with rear disks, but it came with TCS and ABS and I didn't want it. So, I exchanged my drums with a full SVT set-up.

I don't mean to be cocky, but our cars don't stop that hard. You need to work on pedal modulation... I roadraced for 12 years, and when I started to the time I stopped, I learned ALOT. That doesn't mean you need to go racing, but trust me, the focus doesn't need gadgets to make it stop well, all those things are a crutch.
