    Those of you who went braided, did you change the calliper lines as well? It strikes me that it would be silly not to change them all.
    Yes I changed all. Pointless to not in my opinion...

    From Roadrunner Offroad " We will not supply the front caliper lines in Braided, Our supplier has been instructed by head office, not to produce or sell them, even if specially requested, As the line is too short and the braided line does not have as much give, it can cause the line to fail. We are able to do them on the rear though."

    Edit again: Getting a bit confusing when I see that Marks 4WD sell the braided lines for the front calipers.
    I got mine from Marks, maybe 3 or so years ago. Zero issues since...

    Mmm been toying with the idea of charging my brake rotors. Got the bigger gq set in the shed but thought may add well get new rotors befit I install.

    Anyone has issue with cracking etc when going through river crossings? Only something I've got in my head from somewhere but dunno if it happens or not

    Ive heard that aswell. But that could happen to any rotor if its hot enough then hits the chilly mountain water.

    Iím happy to follow the experience so Iíve ordered all braided for front and rear calipers.
    The 3 main lines chassis to diff were $149 (ABS model) and the 4 lines for the calipers were $183 with a 5% code.
    I wonít bother with the front until the rotors turn up.

    Ever thought about rebuilding the calipers while your at it? I rebuilt the TB48 calipers I bought prior to fitting, and also the rear calipers, wasn't hard to do. Also piece of mind. Plus I did find two pistons were pitted so I replaced them.

    Mine only have 160k.
    If Iíd bought 2nd hand calipers Iíd look at overhauling them but they show no signs of needing attention yet.

    I was going through the factory BR.PDF this morning before I start changing brake stuff and noticed in the specs that there doesnít appear to be any difference between the TB48 booster & master cylinder and the other Y61 models.

    Iím happy to be corrected on this but I found it interesting in view of the recent thread on 4.8 booster and @mudski mention of using a 4.8 master cylinder which had me thinking that might be an easy swap also for me but thereís apparently no difference with what I have.

    Hereís a not very good shot I took with my phone of my MacBook screen
