Pricing: $110 + shipping
If you're working on a Tundra brake upgrade for your 1st gen (96-04) Tacoma, one of the things you'll need to decide is whether you want to run a soft line all the way to the caliper (as is done with stock Tacoma calipers) or if you want to swap the lines to match the Tundra - where a hard line makes the final connection to the caliper.
I wrestled with this too, and it's worth reading why it's important to do this right - that is, to convert the caliper line to a hard line - which is written up in Making It Right: Tacoma-to-Tundra Brake Upgrade.
Until now, the only option to convert to soft+hard lines was the LCE kit at $180 or so shipped. That's a ton of money for some brake lines, so I'm now offering an equivalent kit for a total of approximately $120, shipped.
This hard line kit now contains all the necessary parts including the soft lines, but does not include or require a rear brake line - saving you even more money.
The kit includes:
- Two hard lines, bent to fit between a 13WL caliper and the (included) spindle bracket. One right and one left.
- Two spindle brackets, meant to secure the connection between the hard and soft lines.
- Two brake line clips, to secure the soft line at the spindle bracket.
- Two stainless steel soft brake lines (made by the same folks that make Wheelers stainless brake lines) that connect the hard lines on the frame to the hard lines in the kit.
