    Default Powerstop brake kit and braided lines

    Hey everyone,

    Sorry for not being on here recently, senior year of college and Air Force ROTC has been keeping me plenty busy. This semester I will have a little extra coming back from my financial aid and wanted to put it into my truck. I have decided to take my frustrations out on the rust again and once the temperature rises, the any frame rust will be sanded, hit with permatex rust treatment, and then seal it with permatex undercoating.

    Besides that I wanted to upgrade the brakes front and back with Power Stop K2010 Front/Rear Ceramic Brake Pad and Cross Drilled/Slotted Combo Rotors

    and while I'm doing that I wanted to replace the brake lines with Edelbrock / Russell 672430 Direct Bolt-On Street Legal Brake Line Kit.

    Just wanted to know what everyone thought or if anyone had any experience with these products.
    Thanks!

    Kyle.....After I installed the Braided SS Lines, I Noticed that the Soft Mushy Feel when braking was Gone and Less Pedal Travel When Braking......IMO, this would be a Excellent Time to Flush the Entire/Whole Brake System.

    Kyle, I also when with Aftermarket SSBC's Slotted Rotors-n-Pads, and along with Installing the SS Lines, this Brake Setup Now, has been a Solid Improvement over the Factory Brake Setup.

    I've had SSBC's Rotors/Pads, going on 8/9 yrs now and they have around 76K miles on them, and no problems/issues with them.
