BRAKE HOSE LENGTH

Street Machine - - Tech Torque -

DUR­ING the build of your mod­i­fied car, make sure you turn the front wheels from lock to lock and put the front and rear sus­pen­sion through their full bump and droop travel. This will help you iden­tify any of the pre­vi­ously men­tioned is­sues. It will also help you to work out the ideal brake hose length. I reg­u­larly see front brake hoses that act as the steer­ing stops be­cause they are too short. We see oth­ers rub­bing on the in­side of tyres be­cause they are too long and can’t com­press enough to get out of the way on turns. Sim­i­larly, rear brake hoses need to al­low for dif­fer­en­tial droop dur­ing un­der-body jack­ing, with­out go­ing tight.
