    issue with brand new braided stailess brake line( pictures)

    Hi !

    I was in the process of install my brand new braided brake line but i thing i might have an issue with it.

    i bought my stainless line on the web at : autohausaz.com.
    they dont seem to be branded ...

    to problem is that the fitting that goes on the caliper is not Bubble flare. i have install the line from the hardline to the trailing arm with no issue at all. but now the braided line frome the trailing arm to the caliper seem to have the wrong fitting type.

    ( it is the same for the front caliper..)

    i got you 2 pictures to compare the old hose that were on the car ( dont know if it oem , but it is what i remove )

    i have made some research here and there and some say ishould not install them , and other have been in the same struggle and they install them without any issue..
    i have write to autohauaz with no anwser at the moment.

    please could you clear me up with this ?

    thanks

    The original hose better matches the shape of the bottom of the hole for the hose in the brakes.

        It will probably work once bottomed in to the caliper, but you run the risk of stripping threads if too much force is applied to compensate for the mismatch in seat profile. As an aside, all of the stainless lines I've seen before matched, or were pretty close to, the original flare type, so you might just have the wrong part.

            Definitely the wrong part, or their manufacturer fucked up.
