Re: braided hoses? worth it?

If you have older rubber hoses, it will be a night and day difference. If everything is newer and within spec, you'll notice an improvement but it won't be as dramatic. Just make sure the ones you're looking at are DOT approved.

Re: braided hoses? worth it?

Braided hoses look like crap under the hood, kinda 70 ish.....trans hoses that are braided look good! But the upper hose and lower hose and the heater core hoses look like crap( imo )....at least all the ones ive seen do!! I guess it's those kits you buy from auto zone im talking about!

Re: braided hoses? worth it?

I thought he was talking about the brake hoses, since this is the brakes & suspension section?
