Brake Line

With the new front coil springs installed, brake-line clearance is at a premium. With the wheel at full lock and the suspension slightly compressed, the brake line will hit the coil. This was anticipated, and Donahoe suggests gently bending the line away from the coil spring (toward the brake caliper) with a mallet. Randy Ellis strongly recommends regularly checking the line and nut for tightness or movement.
