I ordered my StopTech SS lines last night from My Nismo.......i'll probably install these when i get them even if my rotors and pads haven't come in yet......that way i can give a review of the SS lines alone

One thing....when you install them, be careful to not run them through the stock mounting clip ( i.e. put them in the same way you took out the stock) that is connected right next to the caliper (these are not the snap on clips that . This small turn around bracket will leave the line exposed when the tires turn to come in contact with another bracket contected to the axle....this will wear through the line in a few hours. Depenedent on whether there are instructions to this degree (there weren't any when I received mine), just make sure to install them the same as stock except for that very first bracket. If you need any more detailed info, call me at the shop (419-474-7992: ask for Jordan) or pm me.

BTW, I had these on my (now dead) B15 and loved them.
I had the front and rear kits. They installed in a jiffy and kept my pedal nice and hard... providing I didint toast my Hawk HP+'s which I was doing in no time... I guess it was time for Hawk Blues :D

It not really a clip....if you look, at the point where the line comes off of the caliper, there is a tiny turn about that is only useful with the stock rubber hoses because of their length...the stainless lines are a little longer and will rub if they are bent to fit in that little braket...the other to main snap clips (on the shock and then on the rear wall) are not to be ignored....just run the line through those like usual.

Im not sure if it'll help, but I posted a link below the picture in my other post, it links to a bigger picture of the line installed, might be able to see the clips better... but not much.

I have the russell kit i got from a GB on the v board (109 shipped F+R). I love them: they made the pedal feel so much better and easier to modulate.

good luck! I hope you didnt pay too much

Dan, Dan, Dan...when are going to stop buying more parts! I'm tempted to do brakes next too, but then again my tires are almost shot so I guess we'll see. Congrats Dan!
