Hi. Folks. Say, I'm workin' on my 88 GL 10T wagon, I did the five lug swap several years ago. I'm runnin' late model Legy twin pot calipers and rotors in the front, and have most every thing gathered to switch to Legacy in the rear. I figured this would be a good time to change to braided lines. Does anyone know of an affordable source for these lines? Don't have much cash to throw at it, but seems foolish not to, with all the other mods. Thanks much, Steve.

Theres a few on line specialty shops out there, but you may pay a premium price.

I would try ebay.

I bought a set of Goodridge hoses for a 02 WRX on eBay, and they fit with a few small mods.  This is with the stock calipers.


If I remember the rear fitting is different but it worked fine with a banjo bolt.  Sorry it's been a while...

2000 to 2009 Legacy and Outback use a similar 2 pieces rear brake line setup like our cars do. You can get a set of stainless lines for a 2005 LGT and they should work with the setup you're wanting to run. I have the 2004 WRX rear brakes with 2000 Outback flex lines to go from the hard line mounted on the trailing arm to the caliper. No modifications required.

Not sure where yur located but there are shops that can use your fittings or new ones and custom make a set for you to bolt on. Price was good and quality was exceptional... the hose guy in tenino for instance.
