"Good" replacement brake lines...

I was looking at these on EBay...

Worth the upgrade over OEM lines? Anyone have direct experience with them?

I don't know about you, but I wouldn't trust 40 dollars worth of ebay parts in what I think is the most important safety system in the car lol.

Always appreciate input.

The front Replacement OEM lines are $7 each by comparison from Rock Auto. I'd think these would be less likely to expand with pressure like the soft rubber hydraulic lines. The standard SS braided stuff seems overinflated price wise IMO. I could buy some AN3 SS line and make my own much cheaper than the name brand SS braided like kits. (which are most likely made in china with poor quality standards as well).

Just buy some from summit or jeggs . They carry Earls , aeroquip and Russel, which are all proven at the top level of motorsports. and affordable.
