Might be a good time to replace 'em w/ stainless steel lines.

Hi Y'all,

I had my '95 S6 up on the rack yesterday and noticed that the outer
rubber cover of one of the rear brake lines is cracked where it attaches
to the caliper.  This looks to me like the brake line should be replaced
at the earliest convenient opportunity.  There is no sign of leaking
brake fluid nor is there any sign of "swelling" of the line so I don't
think it qualifies as an "emergency - don't drive the car until it's
fixed" situation but...

Anyway, I've been searching my Bentley and can find nothing on R&Ring
the brake lines.  There is plenty on pads and rotors and calipers and
ABS systems but nothing (that I can find anyway) on brake lines.  Are
there any BTDTs out there or words of wisdom and/or advice and/or other
helpful information?  It looks like only a short section of line,
perhaps 6-8 inches or less, at each wheel might be all that needs to be
