Next on the list of safety-related components are brakes. A complete brake job includes the hardware inside the drum (springs, shoes, wheel cylinders) and new rubber hoses, new hard lines throughout, and a new master cylinder. We recommend replacing all of the hard lines because of the rust found on your originals. Rust makes metal thinner, and you dont want to stop your car with thin brake lines. We got the brake components from Hayes and Fine Lines. If youve got a car originally equipped with a single-reservoir master cylinder, dont hit the road without converting to a dual-reservoir master. If you break a line or a wheel cylinder fails, youll have no brakes. Now is also the time to replace your wheel bearings. At the very least inspect them for wear. We finished the suspension with fresh skins from BFGoodrich.
