is it true that the rubber outside on the stock tt brake lines is just like a protective? one of mine has a crack in it, and i do not want it to burst on me, one of the local supra members told me they are stainless steal or something and the rubber part is just a coating on them, i find that hard to believe. Also I read the stainless steel brake lines from mvp are hard to install because of flaring or something? not too sure, how hard is it to install new brake lines or should i just give it to a shop, i also need 4 new rotors i think. and some clip for the pins in the front calipers, should i just take it to a supra shop?

The stock lines are rubber, not SS. I would suggest replacing with the SS lines regardless of the condition of your stock line, because the SS lines feel much more positive and they seem to reduce fade a bit as well. I think they're a great upgrade for the money. I got my lines from Titan and they were pretty much plug and play, but I too have heard about some problems with installing the lines.

I just had my stock rubber lines replaced with the Goodridge SS ones from MVP and they were not plug and play. All four lines on the car had to be filed down a little at the end because they had flared out some.

Yikes, it doesn't take a dremel - just a regular hand file. And you don't have to take off all that much I don't think.
