This hose set fits 2001 – 2002 Vipers only. Increased braking performance, braided stainless steel hose with clear vinyl coating, corrosion resistant fittings and D.O.T. approved! Installing these stainless steel braided hoses will increase braking performance by providing a firmer pedal feel and immediate response, which in turn allows more control during braking and faster lap times. They are D.O.T. certified * and approved for street use. Sold as a complete car set of 4 with new crush washers and corrosion resistant fittings. Original equipment rubber hoses expand under hard braking. With time, this can lead to a spongy brake pedal feel and decreased performance / consistency. These stainless steel hoses incorporate a special 4 layer design for superior strength and have virtually no volumetric expansion. They start with a Teflon PTFE core (liner) which is wrapped in a Kevlar braid, followed by an elastomer barrier that’s strengthened further by the outer stainless steel braid. Lastly, a clear coat of vinyl is applied for wear protection and a great look. * The Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) has developed a set of standards, FMVSS # 06 (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard), to which all flexible hoses must perform without failing under extreme conditions. In order to be certified the hose must pass the “whip” test. The 4 layer design used in the manufacturing of these stainless steel hoses has proved superior under testing conditions and has surpassed D.O.T. conditions. NOTE: For all 2001 – 2002 Vipers, you will need to retain and re-use the stock banjo bolts for the rear calipers.
