BRAKE HOSE LENGTH
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.
