hey guys i searched but only found 1 thread that helped me with my question. i want to see if i can get more replies... if i install ss brake lines like these http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1989-1993-Celica-All-Trac-Stainless-Steel-Brake-Lines-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem19bd39f29bQQitemZ11054 8873883QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccesso ries
or these http://www.tirerack.com/brakes/brakes.jsp?make=Goodridge&model=G-Stop+Brakeline+Kit&group=G-Stop+Brakeline+Kit&autoMake=Toyota&autoModel=Celica+All-Trac&autoYear=1991&autoModClar= would it icrease my all-trac's stopping power? i shouldnt have air in the brake system. i think my all-trac has the original lines. i was doing a tune up on my wife's sister's 2005 altima and the brakes are WAY more sensitive to the touch.

Beside increased durability and heat resistance, i don't think it'll improve stopping power like disc/pads/calipers upgrade. But they would look great on the car...

You'll also get a different pedal feel, and marginal improvement just because the lines won't swell as much under load.

I got a set on my GT-S (rubber coated ss lines from Techna-fit, alamomotorsports.com) and upgraded to DOT-4 fluid, made a nice improvement in feel and responsiveness.

Fluid, make sure you've got good fluid in there. The fluid has a bigger effect on the brake feel than the lines do.
