    1st gen SS brake lines on 2nd gen calipers

    I'm looking at doing the 2nd gen front brake upgrade on my 1st gen and need to know if the 1st gen Stainless Steel brake lines for a 1st gen will work on the 2nd gen brake calipers????????

    Call up Kore3 industries for your SS lines. They will be able to get you exactly what you need for approximately $60 for the custom lines. I know ZZ4blazer runs them on his 2nd gen S10 with vette brakes and I ordered a pair for the rear.

    I changed everything first and then bled. I would only disassemble one side at a time, so you have the other side for reference. Do both and then bleed starting with the brake farthest from the master cylinder (right rear or right front depending on axle). If your fluid is dark/black and not tan/clear then it would be good to flush the system with no fluid. This will give you firmer brakes because the fluid has broken down. You can either bleed it all out or if you have a vacuum pump you can pull most of it out of the resevoir and only flush out what is in the lines.

    By "SS" in this thread we are talking about stainless steel braided brake lines not the SS S10. If you want more information there seems to be a lot of SS owners on S10forum. I am not terribly familiar with them.

    Looks real good man. I'm jealous of the clean looking brakes.
