    Stainless Steel brake hose 95 STS?

    Has anyone installed SS brake hose on a Caddy? I just did a brake job (rotors and pads) on my 95 STS and one of my brake hose needs to be replaced. Are SS ones a lot more expensive? I guess SS should last longer then regular rubber ones?

    I caught that late and backed out my response. I've tried locating braided lines with no luck. Maybe some shop can make them up for you.

    tsk tsk
    I just got off of the phone with Ben at Precision Brakes Company. They sell braided stainless steel lines with fittings for around $35 each.
    The p/ns for my '99 Seville are:
    SS82085 LH Frt
    SS82086 RH Frt
    SS82337 Rear (only one)
