SS brake hose selection

9 posts in this topic

Hi team,

 

I'm wanting to upgrade my brake hoses when I upgrade from a GC 4-pot to a Brembo 4-pot - does anyone know what kit I need (GD or GC) when I upgrade?

 

TIA

Usually aftermarket lines come with a generic banjo fitting at the caliper end so they would fit any Subaru caliper (The OEM one has a little leg to stop it spinning). GC has a different bracket on the front struts to GD. GC has a small metal clip and GD bolts onto the strut.

 

I’m sure the banjo is the same in the back but I can’t recall if there is a difference in the bracket.

 

You most likely want a GC kit unless you have changed the front struts to a GD style coilover or something.

Hi - thanks for replying - what I'm really wanting to know is, what SS brake hose kit should I but if I run Brembo brakes - GC or GD?

GC kit.

 

 

The banjo fittings on the brembo calipers are the same size as the Sumitomo 4 pot calipers.

Some brake lines have a little locating leg, which isn’t used but doesn’t get in the way either.

Here is a GC8 line on a brembo caliper.

Safebrake?

 

Mine were from them - good quality/fitment /price, no complaints at all.

I've had a good experience with them previously - they are local too. Will give them a bell.

Nice - Need to decide what brand but as long as they work I don't particularly mind

This thread can be archived I guess - thank you for all the responses. I think the idea is to purchase brake hoses that match your chassis.

 

I purchased Goodridge ones and they came with 4 brake lines, 2 pairs of different lengths that were unlabelled, and 8 new copper crush washers. Pretty sure I got them the right way around but pays to double check.

      Hey guys,
       
      Recently got new pads for my Subaru Legacy which has been fitted with v7 brembos.
       
      The new pads compounds are much harder I guess compared to my old ones, as these ones (Dixcel EC) are meant to create less dust.
       
      When I first drive the car and say reverse down my driveway, every time I brake a little bit the brakes/rotors screech like there's no tomorrow, but after I brake a few more times its gone. I've come to the conclusion that it's corrosion on my brake rotors, that's why when I don't drive it for a bit, moisture gets on my rotors and then i'll have to brake a few times to rid of the sound.
       
      It's really annoying, especially when you have heaps of neighbours around and you leave the house before most people wake up.
       
      Any recommendations of what I could do? Cheaper the better, so obviously new rotors that are resistant to rust/corrosion will be last resort.
       
      Thanks guys in advanced
      Ben
