    All Brake Lines are stainless steel factory ones have a rubber coating. After market do not but they should all be the same P.S.I. I have cut open Honda, VW and Ford and they are all steel Quality could be different. Can you cure soft brakes on a 2006 Tundra by just changing LINES? Did bleed brakes no change....

    There is a big difference between internal reenforcing braid and high quality stainless-steel lines. Depending on the quality of the lines you are replacing, braided SS lines can definitely make a difference in pedal feel.

    I need to do something with the FREAKING brakes they stop but they are not crisp. Had a MATRIX really good brakes, Wife has a CRV it stops like a PORSCHE. Where should I go Pads are 1/2 way, Rotors are smooth, no leaks and Master Cylinder looks original. Rear brakes maybe 10,000 miles.

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    Take some 60 grit sandpaper and scratch up both sides of the rotors. This will help with grip vs sliding.
