Installing StopTech Braided Steel Brake Lines

I have decided to replace my 20 year old front brake lines with the StopTech Stainless steel braided lines. Centric (made by StopTech) used to be less expensive but not anymore.

Anyone else have experience with the StopTech's? If so, did you notice a difference? I have the 199mm Tundra upgrade on the front of my rig. Thanks for any input!

Also interested in this. I did the TBU but didn't replace the break line and from what I've read here it firms up the pedal even more.

I just did the 13WL brake caliper and rotor change about an hour ago...I did the Taco brake line from stop tech and it works perfect. I could use the stock mount for the hard line for the new line and it looped great. I got part number 950.44014 from stop tech, it eliminates the hard line so it banjos to the new caliper...you'll need 2 extra brass banjo washers so they don't bottom out in the caliper but they might not in the smaller caliper. I can try and get a pic but I have to use my old phone as it has a crap camera and is easy to upload.

Don’t know what the OP is waiting on, have had these on since 2014 with no problems. Soak them in some Liqui Moly, then install.

Overall, less pedal fade in the hot Southern climate.

I replace front and rear brake lines with stoptech stainless steel at the same time as I did the 199mm upgrade. The brake pedal is very responsive. No more mushy brakes.

Correction Little Caesar: You must BAKE them in LiquiMoly for optimum performance!

I recall the joke about the molly, this place has been kinda dead as for humor lately, since the crash of 2018 site still kind of screwy.

what is the difference between 199 mm and the 13wl tundra brake upgrade? I need to do my brakes this summer.

Ill also change to braided steel lines when I do that most likely.

It's a casting number to order the brakes with to get the larger Tundra brakes...the 231 mm...199 is just a little smaller but since I'm running 18 inch wheels I can fit them no problem...I got all my brakes from one seller on Ebay called Brakemotive76...I got the powder coated calipers, crossdrilled and slotted black rotors and ceramic pads for 300$ delivered...I use these guys for most brake jobs I do weekly...I don't do links because if they change the sale page the link is no good...can search the seller up then search the store for tundra brakes...they got 2 sets to choose from...there's a couple great write ups in this site for the brake upgrade.

Since were on subject of brake lines I'm looking for extended lines.
@LittleCaesar are StopTech's any longer than stock length?
Web site doesn't say or have option, Tech service not open today.

Wheelers has them, which I have used they are SS braided extended performed well. Price not bad.
ToyTec has them along with crazy price and shipping.

It is the larger of the 2 options...I think the 199 is needed with the stock wheels without spacers...I think the 231mm will fit on a 17...I got tons of room with mine at 18...search up the brake upgrade thread...more info than you'll ever need!!

I try to keep BD’s postings somewhat on the lighter side of humorous, though many of his engine oil additives in one way or another do have merit.
