Stainless Steel Brake line Installation in the Lincoln LS
By LVC Member Quik LS
I installed the StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines today.
As you know, I autocross twice a month - my LS is a crowd pleaser.... but could use very little bit of help turning. I have upgraded my brakes with - slotted/drilled rotors, Porterfield Racing Pads, brake ducting from the grill to the rotor guard.... upgrading to these lines were the next logical step.

but my front line were mounted backwards in their brackets...... and before you ask - no - you simply can't swap sides.
Here is a pic of the incorrect mounting
Assemble the valve screw in the caliper end of the line - placing a copper crush washer on each side
Attach the new brake line to the caliper using a 9/16" socket. Hold the line in place while you tighten so the line does not move out of place while turning the screw.
