Default Stoptech Brake Lines for STI?

Hello,

Anyone out there have the SS Stoptech brake lines for the STI?

Looks like the mounting bracket on the front line is made out of plastic ... is this an issue?

(As I recall, the bracket on my old WRXs Goodridge lines was all metal.)

Thanks,
Burt

If you actually see the bracket it looks like it has a high fiber content so IMO it looks up to the task.

I ended up calling the folks from Stoptech and they haven't had any issues with the plastic bracket failing. They did mention that there are small pieces of shink tube on either side of the front brackets that are intended to keep the hose from freely slipping through the bracket: I was advised to back these up with zip ties if the shrink tube moved too freely (after things were installed and set up). No such issues with the rear lines (must be the additional turning motion that the front has).

BTW: the only difference between the WRX and STI Stoptech lines is the front STI lines have a slight bend (30 degrees or so) just before the banjo fitting (the front WRX lines are a straight shot).
