    Hey Folks, I need your help. I've been back and forth with Stoptech all morning trying to find out if the SS brake lines will work on 2009+ FX's with Akebono calipers. They use to offer front and rear, but now only rears are available somehow. I know that they fit the first generation with Akebono calipers for sure, but 2nd generation is a little different and has a hard brake lines to my knowledge or at least the FX50 does.

    My question is, did anyone try to install the Stainless Steel brake lines on 2009+ FX with Akebono Calipers? Thanks in advance!

    ^Thanks Jeff. Just want to make sure that the rear Stoptech Brake Lines will work on 2009+ FX35/FX37, before offering them to our customers. Stoptech changed the compatibility this month. I think someone complained that the rear SS lines were too short or something.

    I have a 2013 FX37 with Akebonos installed. For the rear, I ordered StopTech 950.42500. The line length worked fine, but I had to modify the length of the banjo bolts. They were too long.
    For the front, I ordered StopTech 950.42000, again, I had to modify the length of the banjo bolts.

    I don't quite understand your question.

    If you ordered the above part numbers, they will work, but you will need to shorten the banjo bolts.

    If you ordered from @zebra555, he may have a kit with the short bolts.

    Yes, it should work. I'm working on your replacement as we speak.

    I tried using the StopTech 950.42000 front lines in my 2012 FX35 with no luck. No matter which way I positioned it, I could not get it to sit right where I felt comfortable with it not rubbing anything while turning or with suspension travel.
    The factory set up uses 3 separate pieces of rubber line with a section of hard line that runs behind the steering spindle. Its bolted down to a bracket on the spindle as well as another bracket on the strut assy.

    The StopTech line was just a long piece (not long enough to route it the factory way & too long to route it any other way without it rubbing anything. The front line did not come with any p-clamps to secure it any where either. It had one of those nuts that get retained with a clip in the middle of the line....thats it. Maybe thats how the first gen secures the line.....

    I wound up using the factory front line with the Akebonos....

    The rear StopTech lines work perfectly....
