Possible issue with original 2001 - 2007 E/M/T brake lines

Postby Charles - March 21st, 2019, 3:14 pm

Was looking at YouTube this afternoon and came across a video about a possible issue that you might want to check out if you have the original brake hoses.

Watch this and see if it is something you need to address. :yes:

Mine has new lines front and rear because i replaced my fronts due to cracking and while me and my friend were bleeding the front brakes while it was on the lift a rear line blew out.
