[s-cars] Upgrading stock UrS brakes

I had the Goodridge lines on my car for about 10 years.  They did not seem 
to make any difference in the pedal feel, and one of the rear lines failed 
after 10 years of use.  It burst open in my driveway while trying to bleed 
the servo by the pedal pressure method.  I would recommend just staying with 
the stock lines, which are safer.  I got my new stock lines from SJM.
