One key component in your braking system is the Mustang brake lines. The brake system in every Mustang works similarly to every other car or truck with hydraulic brakes out there on the road. When the brake pedal is pressed, the Mustang brake lines and hoses carry brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brake calipers, with the pressure of the fluid in the Mustang brake lines and hoses causing compression of the calipers, stopping your vehicle.
The Mustang brake lines and hoses are under pressure, especially in extreme stopping circumstances, so they need to be in top shape. One of the best ways to make sure Mustang brake lines are in top working order is to perform a visual inspection periodically. This inspection should be coupled with a more detailed pressure test, which involves pumping the brakes while visually inspecting the Mustang brake lines and hoses for swelling or other changes.
Owners have numerous options when they want to replace or upgrade their Mustang brake lines. The standard, OEM replacement Mustang brake lines for most models is Mustang steel brake lines. If you order your Mustang steel brake lines from CJ Pony Parts, many model years are have pre-built kits available, meaning installation does not require any bending of the lines, so it will take much less time and be significantly less of a headache. They’re also stainless steel, so your new Mustang brake lines will last a lot longer, too.
However, if you’re looking for upgraded Mustang brake lines, CJ Pony Parts also offers Mustang braided steel brake lines, which are more flexible than regular steel brake lines, but just as tough. These Mustang braided steel brake lines are available for 1979 and later Mustangs. These Mustang brake lines are also available in kits, broken out by model year and engine type. No matter what your brake line and hose needs are, CJ Pony Parts as you covered.
