Iím sure the reason vehicle manufacturers donít use it is cost. Stainless braid is way more expensive. You make some valid points though. I didnít have a mushy pedal before, if I do now this flex...

Iím going to start a short thread on that. Iíll show a picture of it. It is like mini-hydraulic hose. Braided, virtually indestructible in the sense of it would probably never rub a hole vibrating...

Brake Lines

This morning I crawled under and checked the brake line running front to rear. As suspected, it has a lot of rust deterioration at several places. (I recently lost brakes on my 1996 Ford Ranger due...

I agree 100%. However, all rear hoses and calipers have been replaced, which I meant to mention at the beginning. When I purchased it several years ago, the rear lines on the differential were really...

Adjusting tightness of bearing nuts

These are the old bearings, no new bearing to press in or otherwise contend with. I tapped the inner nut quite tight. At that point spinning the wheel would continue to turn a 1/4-1/2 turn. I loosed...
