Rigid Brake Lines

I am replacing the OEM rubber brake lines with braided stainless lines but I would like to purchase the Rigid Brake lines that connect the caliper to the stainless steel line. The first attempt already revealed the likelihood of twisting these rigid lines, so I want to have the rigid lines for all four corners in stand-by stock. Can anyone direct me to place to buy and the part numbers. It is for a 2001 Boxster base, thanks

Lines

You may want to buy some plastic line clips that hold the break lines. It is easy to destroy or break them when you are removing the old line.

I've 4 new caliper side hard brake lines (front left and rear right share same part number, and front right and rear left do as well)

2 of this one:
99635558107 - Front Brake Caliper Connecting Line - Left - ES#1485752

and two of this one:
99635558407 - Front Brake Caliper Connecting Line - right - ES#1485754

Brand new never used.

(for 2000 S, should be the same as 2001 but I have not verified)

I would sell them for $40 shipped in the continental US (approximately half off + a little shipping)

If you are planning to replace the caliper side hard line you may want to go ahead and get 4 of the little bracket that holds the brake line to the wheel hub (part #8 & #4 in the picture below) - separating the rubber brake line and then caliper side hard brake line from this bracket was the hardest part of the job for me. I had to take it to my mechanic and clamp it in his big vise and use a lot of force with my snap-on flare wrench (do not attempt to use cheap house brand type of flare wrenches as they will spread and round off the nut).

Let me know if you want these and I can get them out by this afternoon.

Steve

Thanks for the offer, but I just ordered yesterday from Pelican Farts.

They'll probably get there faster in that case as I think they are right there in CA too

Good luck with the job!
