AeroDynamic the main hub wont come apart... my boyfriend couldnt budge it either. The other side was easy and i did it by myself, but i think this ones going to be done by scanwest when i bring it up for another adjustment to my shifter linkage.

JK Oh....hahaha! I was wondering how it would have made a loop like that!

I also will be doing stainless lines soon on either one or both of my cars, I am all about getting the brakes as good as they can be with the stock claipers and rotors.

iwantaviggen steve.. all is together except the sway link... and the ABS sensor i forgot to put on.. but its okay its at home in the drive way..

JK.. the line is just like that for the picture.. the caliper was already off and hanging..

i think ss lines are in order!!

JK That looks like a lovely mess...I love it when CVs explode! Just a little note, next time make sure your brake line isn't doing a "loopdie" thats probably why there's shit missing from it, yikes!

stevehayes01 Man that looks like it was fun! So is it all back together yet?

mcrowley Sheesh, what a mess! I had one with a small tear about as wide as a dime in my last car and it flung almost as much grease around inside the wheel as you got there.
