LX_TREME,
thanks for your reply. the japanese ganlock is kinda expensive around $300. do you think earl's is cheaper?

I had Earl's custom-make stainless brake hoses a few years ago. You can get either stainless end fittings (what I got, highly recommended if you live where it rains a lot or roads are salted), or normal (steel?). The advantage to the Earls hoses is you can replace the hoses if/when they wear out and re-use the ends, replacing only the hose itself and the olive. Those stainless end fittings were pricey...like $10 ea, IIRC. I had 3 hoses made each 2" longer than stock for an OME lift...seem to remember it costing like $110-120+tax back then. If you do get custom Earls hoses, I'd recommend getting some shrink wrap (you can get pieces like 4' long at real electronics shops [i.e., not radio shack] for around $4) and shrink wrap them. I ended up getting that plastic spiral stuff you use to wrap bundles of wires and affixed the ends with nylon ties. If I did it again, i'd use shrink wrap. This is to reduce the dirt hitting the hoses, which should increase their longevity.
