I have 2-2.5" rear lift, and the stock rear brake hose does not appear to be in danger of being stretched ...based on seeing it up on a lift, at full droop, in the service shop.

Your shocks are likely still stock length of very close. I am running OME 906's and Nitrocharger shocks. I did not need any brake line extension either, its juuust close to tight, but still has slack at full stuff or droop.

If you buy the 1st gen taco lines from Stoptech, Toytec or Wheelers they come with the banjo bolts and very thin copper washers.

I found O'Reilly's has a banjo bolt and washer kit for $4 that has thicker washers - many threads about banjo bolt being too long and not sealing.

I also found 1.5mm thick M10 copper washers on Amazon for a good price ($9 for 30)

I got my.lines from Wheelers


Just FYI if going this route for all

What's the benefit of this setup? Are the hard lines a common failure point?

No they don't unless they rust through. Makes it easier to change brake pads and looks cool...


Now the rubber flex lines can fail by cracking and the inner rubber collapse in shutting off

I don't like the weird hard line from the caliper. It makes it awkward when removing the caliper. There was no price difference between replacing just the current brake hose and replacing the hard line at the caliper with the brake hose. Seemed like an obvious decision for me.

Makes sense. That hard line does make things awkward when doing brakes.

Does that banjo bolt work with the stock calipers or do you need TBU calipers?

Never underestimate the importance of looking cool.

Nothing wrong with that. Pull the clup on the flex line to easily change the pads. Or you can just pull the bolt that the flex line holds to make it even easier. I mostly just remove the bolt as I think that's the fastest way to change the pads. However this just how I do it.

The banjo bolt works with my stock calipers (S13WM). I don't see why they wouldn't work with the S12WE calipers as they use the same short hard line at the caliper.

I've done both methods before, but I prefer the extra movement from the longer section of flexible hose. To each their own though and it's all personal preference. I don't remove the calipers often, but it makes a difference for me.

I removed those hardlines after installing spindle gussets and went for taco lines.

I know of 2 guys with gusseted spindles that experienced hardline failures, 1 lost brakes. JM2C
