I crashed my '07 SE today :lol: and my front brake line got cut so it needs to be replaced. I really haven't had issues with the stock brake so I was going to replace it with the OEM piece. Or is there a better option available? I'd rather not spend a lot.

Some poeple replace their stock line with a stainless steel braided one. Most people do this because the pressure in the line when applying the brakes doesn't expand the line. It provides a better brake feel. But i was thinking so there were between 60-80 dollars so thats why I don't have one! :lol:

The steel lines work much better and last. I use Ride Engineering and their site list them for $64.95 http://www.ride-engi...&pn=BL-01212-CL while the OEM runs higher in price from what I've seen listed at retail (i.e., over $80).

Go with the stainless steel line but be prepared to be pumping for a while.
