I've been searching for direct replacement Street stainless steel coated brake line kits with all the brackets, banjos and crush washers. Has anyone installed such a kit? Where did you purchase it? How did it fit? I've seen listings for other Subies but not the Foz. Any info is appreciated.

After some reading I will be doing the lines with a full flush with super blue. And if I can find one in time, an Sti brake booster

I've got WRX fitment TechnaFit black coated Stainless brake lines on mine... no complaints or issues.
So does it matter if I get WRX or STI lines ? What did you pay from Touge ?

I need a set before next weekend, I'll send him an email and see if he can ship them or not (prays lol). Not sure if we have a local vendor who can get them.

Techna Fit makes good SS braided lines, they are coated and DOT approved. They make a kit for the Forester. there is no need to buy 2 different kits. Super blue is a great fluid for the price. High boiling point and a cool color!

^^ I just ordered a Forester specific set of Techna-Fit's and will do a write up on install. I've been using Super Blue for years, holds up great at the track.

I don't see an application for a Techna-Fit kit for the 2006 with rear drums. Anyone know if the disc setup is the same? I'll send them an email and find out.

The front is the same or similar enough - caliper is almost in same location.

The rear is different though. The line goes into the wheel cyl. in a much different location.

So are people running the WRX / STI lines still at stock ride height? I'm just wondering if the extra suspension travel causes any problems. I would think the WRX/STI would have shorter lines, but maybe not or it does not matter.

I ran Goodridge lines on my WRX for 7 yrs, and would like to give those lines a new home on my Forester.

Thanks Ken. I sent them an email and asked if they sell a set for the 2006 and that they only list the 2005. They replied, yeah, we sell 2005.

Gee...thanks.

I think I'll wait since I may put a 1" lift on the car next year.

Quite a few of the non-WRX Subaru applications are different - and it's hard to check each one - but yes they are a bit behind on the listings.
