Ladies and Gents,

 

What lines do I need to fit the Brembos to a Gen 2? The Gen 3 was a direct fit, whereas I think the Gen 2 runs slightly different lines (the connection to the calipers are different I believe), and as I cut the factory rubber ones (knowing I was going to put braided ones on), I'm now chasing some info on which ones I need.

 

Would prefer to ask the brains trust here than ask some freshman at the local parts store and end up ordering the wrong set...

 

Cheers,

Ben


MY02 Blue B4, aka 'The Project' - v8 Spec C engine package and assorted other 'goodies' - Sold, then bought back for parts. In process of stripping.

MY97 Silver RX, aka 'The Track Toy' - All good bits from B4 will find their way into this...
MY03 Holden Commodore - Daily. Because good on fuel.

Ah thats cool then, thanks for the quick reply there Nick. So it would seem the lines are all ok. I'll get a set of GC ones just to make sure.

For the most part GD and GC bits fit without issues as the only real difference is the body not the chassis

Im running stock gen 2 lines with my brembos
Since you have cut the gen 2 lines you will need to get some gen 2 specific braided lines or rubber

gen2 or GC ones, the GD ones have different mounting to the strut and the rears are different.

Awesome. GC ones it is. Probably see the local parts store in a few days and see if they can get some braided lines for me. Failing that, Import monster should be able to hook me up with some STi ones, just have to find the part number. I've seen cheap braided lines fail, so not real keen on cheaping out on these.

Thanks for all the info fellas.

When I was looking for braided lines for my lifted L I dropped into a local shop in Bendigo who made up custom lines. For six flexible braided lines it was about $360 from memory (this was about 7 or more years ago!)

Goodridge or hel are good quality aftermarket brands
Adr approved also not that it really matters for a track car.
