Proper Length Of Each Line In Relation To Wheel Travel And Steering Angle Is Critical To Avoid Brake Failure. Equally Important Is Brake Lines Must Be Free Flowing And Have No Contamination. Additionally, All Calipers Must Be Bled Properly, Regardless Of Kit Purchased. Do Not Attempt Brake Line Or Caliper Installation Without The Experience To Properly Evaluate All these Issues.
