    hi all - I'm doing the big brake upgrade on my '91. I followed some guidance on here and got '95 spindles and put on '02 Taurus calipers, bracket, pads. Well, now my stock brake hose is at more of an angle, and I'm not sure if it will harm the rubber hose. Please see the attached pic. and this is with the wheels straight. Anybody run into this? I guess I could grind off the tab on the caliper and put the base of the hose at a different angle, right?

    well, i figured it out..the cheap sansung brake hose has a different bend than the OE. I put my OE hose back on and it is positioned correctly now! Now, hopefully my original brake hose is still pretty good.

    Upgrade to some braided lines. Definitely worth it.
