Goodridge SS Brake lines

Has anyone ever put them on our trucks? Is there any reason we shouldn't?

The part number is 15010 fits 2011-2013 ... so I don't see why it wouldn't fit the 2014's

No reason you shouldnt. You should get a slightly firmer pedal as a result. You should also flush and change the brake fluid and make sure you use the correct wrenches. Not sure if Goodridge require AN wrenches or not. I prefer Earl's brakes lines. Its more fun if you make your own lines. Make sure the new lines are as long or longer than the OEM lines.

Thanks for your input man. I tried searching the forums for any other posts but I turned up with nothing.

I will consider the brake fluid flush, lol only 7k on the current fluid. Obviously I will bleed the breaks and add fresh fluid....... I guess I might aswell just run a bottle or 2 through all four corners .

I have never made my own lines... im too scared too. messing with the brake system this much already makes me nervous when messing with something that has my life in its hands.

i used to help plumb race cars so I had some good instructor's guys who had been doing it for 20+ years. I have always used Earl's brake lines and never had a problem. I prefer Earl's over Aeroquip and Russell. I have heard of Goodridge just never used them. I always preferred to use American products
when available.

Be sure you are dealing with a reputable company for any brake lines or any other type of SS lines. There used to be counterfeits on the market.

I dont believe they are a US company and are based in the UK. Earl's is owned by Holley. Aeroquip is owned by Eaton and Russell by Edelbrock.

Re: Goodridge SS Brake lines

Hi all, i've just had a local custom brake shop manufacture four teflon coated braided lines for my 2014 Limited but he couldn't get a pedal after multiple bleeds. I ended up taking it round the corner to the local jeep service department and they advised that you needed to have the Scantool attached while you bleed the brakes. They've now had the car for two days and have tried manual bleeds as well as with the Scantool but still cannot get a pedal.
Naturally they are now saying that the braided hoses are the fault and that I need to put the OEM hoses back on.
I'm waiting on the service manager to call me back to explain how changing hoses makes a difference.
Has anyone else ever experienced an issue where they couldn't get a pedal?
Please help....

Re: Goodridge SS Brake lines

I installed the Goodridge ones myself while installing the srt8 Brembos, and I didn't have an issue nor needed a scan tool. The install took a while but nothing more than that. Sounds like you have a leak or air in the system.

Here is the link to my experience and some pics SRT8 Brembo's on 20x9's


BTW - Webby1970, Han shot first... lol love the pic man.

Re: Goodridge SS Brake lines

Thanks Evolv0, I'm taking it back to the custom brake shop this morning. After four brake bleeds with and without the computer attached the dealership couldn't get a pedal. I'll get the custom guy to do a bench bleed on the master cylinder if he has to. It has to work.

And Han totally shot first before Lucas stuck his nose in and messed with it.
Cheers
Webby

BTW nice looking overland.

Re: Goodridge SS Brake lines

Thanks for the compliment... I hope you get this sorted out... You should probably make a new thread and input all your issues and findings so far. There are some pretty knowledgable people on here who may be able to help you out!

Re: Goodridge SS Brake lines

Upgrading next week to goodridge lines along with ebc yellowstuff, stop tech rotors, and ATE fluid. Will post review afterwards. I've used goodridge lines on past Toyota and Lexus vehicles with no issues.
