re: stainless/teflon flex brake lines
<<Sorry, if this has been brought up before, but does anybody know where I
can order a set of stainless brake lines for my 4kq for a good price?
I'm trying to have my suspension and brakes all done on the car by this

Mark: A couple years ago I got a set from GPR (German Parts and
Restoration). My understanding is they sell two types: with and without some
form of certification that they are good for road use. Look in European Car
magazine, too: several places state they sell the stainless lines.
I've read somewhere that the stainless/teflon don't flex as well as rubber
during suspension travel, and may wear through over time. True/false? Are
the stainless wrapped teflon always better than OEM? What benefit beside a
slightly stiffer pedal due to less expansion than the rubber lines?
