Hey guys, did some searching on here but wasn't able to find what I needed.
Looking for stainless steel lines for a 3rd gen. I know Corksport includes a set with the crazy BBK but I'm looking for an a la carte option for use with my mostly stock brakes.
My reasoning is simply to improve brake feel as the stock brakes even at their peak have always felt a little spongy in the pedal.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Currently on PowerStop pads with stock rotors, just ordered centric StopTech front rotors and replacement pads. Any suggestion on brake fluid that will improve brake feel? Car is DD'd with some spirited but non-track driving.

Just as clarification, I gather there aren't many, if any, places to get off-the-shelf steel lines? I know due to the placement of the master cylinder a brace is out of the question in aiding feel.

Thanks Chutoyy!
How is the brake feel with the upgraded lines?
Uhhh.... You can still feel some firewall squish when you first apply the brakes, but it firms up quicker w/ easier modulation... But I'm using stock pads right now cause Centric can't seem to send me the correct rear brake pads. -___-'

Don't forget you can get custom brake lines made in a variety of materials and colors. But as pointed out the first thing to improve brake feel and performance is by a complete brake fluid replacement. And more consideration of the pad choice, which has higher benefits then other brake components on anything except a track only vehicle.

I'm looking for SS brake lines also and the ones suggested in this thread are just for Japan built cars... anything out there for the Mexico built cars?
