Made in Australia to meet or exceed ADR42/04 the Roadsafe range of Extended Brake Lines are available in either standard or braided format. Extended brake lines are required if you have a suspension lift over 3”. When you lift 3” or higher, you will find that your original brake lines are fully stretched on full droop, this results in line fatigue and eventual breakage resulting in brake failure. Roadsafe extended lines are available for both 3-4” and 5-6” lifted vehicles. The reason for the two sizes is so there is not too much slack in the lines on the smaller lifts, which can catch and tear.
Why Change the brake lines? Every time you apply pressure to the brake pedal, your brake line rubber expands a bit due to the high hydraulic pressure (volumetric expansion) used during braking. This eventually causes the brake lines to ‘soften’, increasing with age, resulting in a soft, spongy feel in the brake pedal. When you have that feeling then it is possible that new brake lines are required. If a lift has been fitted to the vehicle, with already softened brake lines this can further result in brake line failure.
Why Braided Brake Lines? By putting a stainless steel braid around the rubber brake line the potential for expansion, due to the high pressures and high temperatures, is reduced. This gives the brake lines a consistent line pressure resulting in a more efficient braking system and firmer feeling in the brake pedal. More efficient braking further results in reduced braking distances during a hard stop.
