Trying to improve pedal feel on my SF N/A. Currently has Liberty GT brakes front and rear with QFM HPX pads, master cylinder size is 1/16".

Anyone replaced standard brake hoses with braided ones and can comment on the difference felt?

Might also check brake pedal free-play and adjust that if required.

I dont think they are worth it for the money unless it is one of the last things you want to do. You'd be better of spending money swapping in bigger brakes, unless you are towing again there is no requirement.

Brake booster stopper... its a brace in the engine bay to stop it flexing. Was popular on gc8 wrx back in the day.

If the lines are long in the tooth and you were considering a replacement I'd go the braided option (depending on availability) over new OEM lines.

Bad brake feel is probably just the QFM pads doing what they do...
