It's not just me but I've talked to others that have said the same thing. Bleed the brakes first and see if that helps. Tracking the car where you may mash the pedal a lot and very hard you might see a difference. Also, get some that are coated in some sort of sheath of plastic. Naked lines will saw through metal if it rubs against stuff.
Okay, I've heard similar stuff on an RX7 forum, and also that any dirt and grit that works its way in between the braids may eventually wear through the inner rubber. I'm planning to attack the nearly whole brake system on our 13B this week - rebuild the calipers, master cylinder, new rotors and pads, SS lines... just about everything but the hard lines, booster, and pedal. Anyway, the lines I got are not pre-coated, so is there any general consensus on what to use for a coating after-the-fact?Also, get some that are coated in some sort of sheath of plastic.

Get rid of our drums, that would a step in the right direstion. The lines are easy to install, also, whilst doing that you can change you brake fluid.How hard is the install??? Do you need any special tools to complete the installation? And since I have rear drum brakes will they work>???
