Hi,

I am considering carrying out this mod in the future on my 59 plate MK2.5, I did it on my Facelift Mk 1. What a difference it made especially with a heavy loaded car.

I do have a question about the hoses. I will be changing the brake hose set before I do the Mod and I see you changed them as part of the mod. Are the hoses different between the Drum and Disc? I don't want to get ones for the drums then in a few months time change the rear ones again. If it's just a matter of length then I would get the longer ones as these would fit both or is a more fundimental difference such as the fitting at the caliper end? 

Thanks.

Based on technical drawings of ATE there are a few differences between the rear brake hoses for disc or drum brakes.

* Lenght. The brake hoses for disc brakes are a bit longer.
* Fitting at the caliper end. The thread is the same (M10 x 1) but the threaded end of drum brake hoses is much longer than the threaded end of disc brake hoses.
* Position of the vulcanised rubber protection sleeve and mounting grommet.


Based on the technical drawings I suppose the brake hoses for disc brakes will probably not fit on drum brakes.

Hi,

OK thanks for that info. I may just change the front for now and change the rear at the same time as I do the mod. I will be going for braided steel hoses when I do.
