GKTech Braided Lines Fouling issue?
« on: July 12, 2016, 06:41:53 PM »
Hey guys,

I've had a set of the GKTech braided brake lines installed on my r33 gtst for a while now, but my wof inspector has just picked up that they are fouling on the stud from the sway bar link and that it's a fail, now these are a different design to factory brake lines as it is one solid hose from chassis to brake caliper rather than having the box bolted to the caliper.

Have any of you had this issue and if you have how did you fix it? I was thinking of using some P clamps but I cant see anywhere suitable to clamp it to without stretching and straining the hose :/

Any help would be highly appreciated!

Cheers

Are they the right lines for your car? Maltech make braided lines to suit a variety of front ends.

Yep definitely the right lines for my car. Its the GKTech ones that fit r32 and r33.

Its the rear that im having the issue with. Its because the braided lines come straight out of the caliper, where the factory lines have a little box where it goes straight up instead of out.
