If you are looking to upgrade just one part of the brake system on your daily driver, the Goodridge G-Stop Brakeline Kit is definitely the first thing to purchase. It is the easiest way to get a better pedal feel and peace of mind over stock rubber lines. They may not be as visible as other components you can add to your vehicle, but make a lasting impression. I combined the Goodridge G-Stop Brakeline kit with Brembo Sport.EVO 500++ Brake Fluid, Brembo GT 328mm Big Brake Kit (favoring slotted over the drilled for heavy or track use) and matching Brembo Sport Rotors/Pads for the rear wheels and now stop with complete confidence. Absolutely no fade is felt, the distance needed to stop feels quicker and virtually no noise is made except sometimes at walking speeds for a millisecond, even in the rain. This may be just because everything is still new or because of the pad material. When stopping from normal or highway speed there is no noise. Brake dust seems somewhat greater verus the stock setup, but if you are willing to upgrade your brakes, regular maintenance with a good wheel cleaner should already be part of your routine and not an issue. Wheel spacers, which Brembo says may be required with the GT Big Brake Kit due to caliper clearance, were needed to make everything complete. The best news is everything was an easy bolt-on.
