    You mean M-series don't have braided lines from the factory!

    They're internally braided rubber hoses but they're over 9 years old now. It was about the same for a new set of the OEM ones and the SS braided lines on sale so I pulled the trigger on the SS lines. I figured with the new lines, brass caliper bushings and some motul rb600 I won't have the softer brake feeling after 15 minutes on the track.

    I forgot to update about the shock issue I was having. See this post.

    For now I'll just clean off the threads and put a little thread locker on there to hopefully prevent this from happening again. I really don't want to send in the shock and be told they won't cover it so I'll leave it until it explodes then get it replaced.

    They said seepage from a strut was normal? What kind of struts are they? Sounds like a company to avoid in the future.

    Yup, I tried arguing with the guy for 5 minutes then said screw it. He also kept insisting I didn't tighten the top nut enough, I'm 100% sure I did and followed their instructions. They're actually Koni built shocks valved specifically for this company.
