    Hey guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com, here with the review of the Russell Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line Kit for 2005 to 2014 GT and V6 Mustangs with AVS. There're a handful of reasons to upgrade your brake lines. Yours could be broken or damaged, you could have a spongy feeling pedal that you wanna get rid of, you're upgrading our brakes and you're gonna be in the area anyway, or maybe you want upgraded braking, but you don't have the money for a big brake kit so you're looking at adding brake lines to your build to increase your stopping performance. Whatever the reason may be, these are gonna be a good option for you if you're looking for front and rear, direct fit braided stainless steel lines that are gonna function better than the stock rubber lines. Just like the stock clutch line, the stock break lines can also experience expansion, especially as they get older. The stock brake hoses are made from rubber and the rubber allows for this expansion. These lines from Russell are braided stainless steel hoses with zinc plated fittings. The stainless steel won't allow for the expansion in the lines and that means a firmer pedal feel and better braking performance. These are not universal hoses, these are direct fit upgrade replacements that are specifically designed for the 2005 to 2014 GT and V6 Mustangs with anti-lock brake systems. Anything direct fit is usually a better bet, in my opinion. Fits better, it functions better, and it tends to last longer and have less issues functioning, in my personal experience, so I like that these lines are direct fit. They also have zinc fitting so they'll be leakproof.These lines are designed for stock application, so if you already have a big brake upgrade kit that has totally changed your braking setup, you would need to find lines that would work with that setup. But if you have stock or stock upgrade components, these will work for you just fine and these will work with Brembo equipped cars as well. These are DOT approved and they're 50 state legal as well, so they meet or exceed the DOT guidelines. This kit includes both front and rear lines, so this is a complete kit that'll upgrade you all the way around.When it comes to price, you can expect to pay a little north of the $100 mark for this kit. This is right in the middle of the price range when you look at other options that are out there. You have a full performance upgrade kit that still keeps the rubber lines, but they're upgraded rubber. And then you have a stainless steel Teflon option from J&M that's a little bit more expensive than this kit here is. Either way, at the end of the day, if you're looking for a consistent pedal feel, you can't go wrong upgrading your lines. This install is a bit more involved and it's gonna take some expertise, as well as some time. I wouldn't recommend this as a first-time job for anyone. You'll get spending a couple hours in the garage by the time you get everything finished up and the brakes bled, and this is gonna be a two outta three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You need a handful of tools and I'd keep some brake fluid on deck as well as an empty bottle to bleed into. You're gonna need to get the car in the air to remove the wheels. You can start by pulling the brake lines right away and there are retaining clips that you need to pull the lines away from. They'll be a nut and banjo bolt at the caliper connection point that you remove so that you can remove the brake line. This kit comes with new lines so you won't need to save your old ones. You'll install your washers and banjo bolt on to the new lines, install your fasteners, and make sure the connection at the caliper is installed in the same orientation it was removed. Once you reinstall the clips and brackets and tighten the connectors, you're all done and it's time to bleed the brakes. Of course, bleeding the brakes is an easier process if you have a helping hand, and you're gonna wanna make sure that the master cylinder is full and topped off. Wrapping things up here with the Russell Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line Kit, this kit includes both front and rear braided stainless steel lines that won't allow for expansion and will, in turn, give better braking performance and a more consistent pedal feel. As always, you can check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Improves Braking. Russell Stainless Steel braided brake hoses provide far superior performance than the original stock rubber hoses. Russell brake hoses reduce expansion for improved braking, firmer pedal feel and better brake modulation.

    D.O.T. Certified. Russell Stainless Steel Brake Hoses not only improve the braking performance of your Mustang, but they also meet or exceed the strict guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of transportation (DOT).

    Application. These are not universal fit hoses you get at your local parts store, this set of Russell Stainless Steel braided hoses are designed to be a direct fit upgrade replacement for the front and rear of the 2005 to 2014 V6 and GT Mustangs equipped with Antilock Brake System (ABS).

        Will these fit Brembo Brake package? I have a 2013 gt with the brembo brake package and was wanting to double check to see if these will fit them as well.

        So what do you guys end up doing about the banjo bolt crush washers?? Do you a) just reuse the old copper ones (at least you can torque them properly), or do you b) use the aluminum washers provided with the kit (people say these aluminum washers suck, and since you can't torque them, lines will leak)? I was about ready to install the hoses this weekend, but after reading all the reviews, I now think should I go and try order OEM ford washers p/n EOAZ-2149-B.. This will be another ~$15 bucks for qty.8 plus shipping, and probably another 2 weeks. Really disappointed the kit doesn't come with proper copper washers.

        • While the aluminum washers can be used, we prefer the tried and true copper washers.

        I ordered this product in June 2018. Finally got some time to stick them on. Question: Many of the 2017 reviews indicated this Russell Stainless Steel Brake Line kit comes with inadequate aluminum crush washers and will require us, the consumer to go buy stronger copper crush washers to withstand the factory 41lb torque . The 2018 reviews don't seem to indicated this. So which is it? I'd hate to install them as is and find the washers that came with the product not hold up and something mechanical happens resulting in an accident.

        • Copper washers are not required, however many install copper washers to replace the aluminum washers as cheap insurance.

        Will these work on a 2011 GT500? I know it doesn't say so in the fitment section but all the other line kits say "Excluding GT500", and the only kit that says it fits 07-12 GT500 isn't steel braided.

        • Unfortunately the Russell Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line Kit will not fit your 2011 GT500.

            SS lines

            I was replaced my Rotors/Pads and was going to flush my brake system, so figured why not install these... the install was fairly straight forward, I didn’t have any issues with the aluminum crush washers. I would’ve preferred the copper, but I don’t have any leaks. I didn’t really noticed any improved braking, or feel. Could just be me. They do look good!

            Great Product Great Price

            Having previous experience with braided brake line these are everything you would look for in braided lines. The install for these line is relatively simple. Most of your time will be getting set up. Having a helping hand to bleed the air out of the lines is definitely a good idea. The pedal feel is greatly improved and stopping distance is reduced. I would recommend these for your Mustang

            They fit just like OEM, all the parts you need in the kit, easy install. Heavy duty better than factory. No worries about brake line failure with these lines. I would recommend for a upgrade.

            So much for stopping on a dime !

            I've had these Russell brake lines installed on my 08 GT for about 2 maybe 21/2 years . Sure they fit good , were affordable . I'll give you that . Car had good stopping power . The only problem they didn't last very long . My left rear brake line ruptured unexpectedly for no apparent reason ! I will chose a different vender next time .

            Much improved pedal feel

            I noticed right away a firmer and more predictable pedal feel. I don't love the way they attach to the caliper, the line ends could have been square shaped like the factory lines for a more secure fit. I would highly recommend this product for anyone who wants a more precise pedal feel, even with a stock set up.

            Stoppage!

            These as well as all the other breaking components I installed helped insanely. Paired these with some pads and rotors and feels like I can actually control my braking power now. Fit perfectly only thing is had to reuse factory banjo bold but simply cut the old crush washers off with some pliers.

            For the price, they could be MUCH better!

            I was initially impressed with these; they look and feel to be of a high quality. I was a little concerned though to see they came with really thin, light duty aluminum washers. I purchased copper washers just to be safe; add another $8.00. Then it came time for installation. I was REALLY disappointed with the rear lines. The stock lines, and it appears many of the after market lines, have a squarish banjo fitting for the rear calipers. THESE DO NOT! It is pretty much impossible to keep these from rotating out of position when applying the proper 41 ft. lbs. of torque while tightening the banjo bolt. I kind of with I had spent the extra (roughly) $25.00 for the aftermarket lines with the PROPER banjo fitting!

            Don't trust the crush washers

            Russell includes aluminum crush washers that will not stand the factory 55 Nm (41 ft-lb) of torque, it will destroy them. Even Russell themselves on their website recommends copper crush washers. I also destroyed the factory bolts when taking off the lower crush washer, just do yourself a favor and get new banjo bolts and thick copper crush washers before you start. Other than that it works great and gives a much improved brake feel.
