    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 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.

    • The Russell Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line Kit will work on any 2005-2014 GT or V6 with Anti-Lock Brake system with the factory calipers. If you are utilizing different pads and rotors only, this kit will absolutely work.

    I plan on upgrading my rear discs to 14" Baer Eradispeed rotors with a relocation block so I can reuse the original factory calipers. I don't think there will be a problem, if anything the brake lines will probably be longer than I need. Any insight?

      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.

      Much harder bite on brakes. A lot more tension and response/feel. Definitely worth the money. Decently cheap install around $250. Definitely worth the small upgrade.

      Good product

      Replacing factory rubber hoses is always a good idea if you are going to track your Mustang. Also switching to a dot 4 or 5 brake fluid is also a good idea. The Russell brake lines were easy to install but BE CAREFUL; do not over tighten the line connector into the Russell hose! The female receiver on the brake hoses is shallower than the factory ones so don't try to overtighten the connector. If you like I did, cut the bubble flare off, purchase a .200 diameter drill bit and you need to drill out the new 3/16" male fitting. There is a rubberized coating on the factory brake lines which causes the standard 3/16" fitting to not slide over the line. Also important is the fact that the flare on the line is a BUBBLE flare and not a DOUBLE flare. A flaring tool is available at the local parts store for $35.00.

      Great lines, terrible hardware.

      The braking feel is night and day with these lines. Brake feel was much more solid and responsive, however the aluminum crush washers they give are terrible had one leak and another one just split in half while trying to torque it down. I replaced them all with copper ones and never looked back. Over all they are a must have for better brake feel.

      Great product

      I installed these alone within an hour just replacing the lines. Everything is a direct fit and so far functioning well. I noticed a more firm pedal response and have piece of mind knowing at least my lines are not a weak link. Shopping was as quick as always and parts arrived in excellent condition.

      Great Upgrade!!

      Worth every penny!!I bought for performance,not so much the look.I've had to make a couple hard stops,and noticed a difference in moderate to hard brake pedal application.Old lines served its purpose,but for Street use,even better.I would think that on a track you notice even better performance.I had stainless lines on my GSX-R,was a great upgrade.So I bought these lines for my Mustang GT.Strongly recommend.

      Great package

      Russell is a great brand of stainless braided brake lines. I've purchased them in the past on other vehicles and thanks AM for carrying these in a complete package. I was doing other brake work while installing these. Time was minimal due to already having removed wheels. It would take longer to remove the wheels than to install these brake lines

      Excellent

      For the price this is a no brainer. If your Mustang is getting up in miles and you are going through your higher mileage maintenance items you might as well add these in. Direct fit no issue install. Replaced the rubber lines while flushing the brake lines to replace fluid. If you are not comfortable working on the braking system ave your favorite shop install and bleed the system.

      these brake lines gave me all my stopping power back more. i stop 20ft sooner than i did with oe lines, and my calipers have more presssure applied to them when i stop cuz of the low capacity tubes. russell brake lines have done wonders for my brake power.

      They Work As Expected

      I recently upgraded my 11' GT to 4 piston Brembo brakes and decided to go stainless for my brake lines. The price was right at AM for these, so I pulled the trigger. Packaging was confusing as they were labeled for an 05-09, but, after talking with AM support, I cracked open the box and went ahead with the install anyhow. Everything installed just fine and I appreciated the clear labeling on the lines themselves, which made it easy to know what went where. My only gripe and why I gave it 4 stars over 5 were maybe some guidance around the banjo bolts. I wish it came with banjo bolts as removing the old ones from the original lines was not simple as the original copper crush washer needed to be cut off. Overall, they definitely allow for a consistent brake feel.

      More Bite While Braking

      Swapping out the factory lines for these Stainless Steel ones made a huge difference in my braking performance, giving me more confidence at autocross events with how late I can brake. They help to eliminate fade and give you overall night and day performance when compared to stock.
