    One of my rear slaves is leaking and slowy loses fluid. I have boughtall new slaves and ss lines to install, but it will be a while before I can install them b/c the cruiser is being shipped to Durango, CO next week. How long do you guys think I can safely drive on a leaky slave if at all? The brakes work fine right now..

    As long as you remember to carry a bottle of brake fluid with you. I've had them leak for years.

    As long as you feel comfortable doing so, but remember, it is not just your life that you are risking, there are others on the roads too.

    Thanks guys. Im confident with them right now, and intend to replace thme as soon as I have a chance in Colorado. We are moving, and Im losing my cool garage here for unkown living arangements in Durango. I dont have time to do it before I go, and am concerened that it will be a while before they get done out there w/out a garage in the cold!
