I ordered a set of stainless brake lines off of Ebay. I can say that they are a big improvement over the OEM units. I am very CHEAP and tried several of the DYI methods of bleeding the brakes and still had problems getting the air out, most of the problem was with the front brakes. I spent $6 for a one man bleeder jug and $2 for a squeeze bottle to back fill the brake lines. I probably spent 3-4 hours trying to get the fronts purged of air with little success. I then went to Harbor freight and bought a hand pump vacuum. In 10 minutes I had the fronts working. Of course I should have went to HF first. They now have the pump on sale for $20 and there is a 20% off coupon I think you can use. This seems like a pretty good tool. This is the first one I have ever used so I have nothing similar to compare it to but it did what I needed it to do.
