There are few brands of SS hose, most known is supercircuit which for saga flx is about rm 599 when i checked last year.

Check EA Autoworks in bukit jalil..

Overpriced in my opinion, super high profit margin. The material cost and workmanship doesn't justify the price, hence why I never bothered to change my other cars to SS hose after price keep increasing.

No brp. Pro RS around 300 plus i guess.

Supercircuit gives lifetime warranty when checked with them. Pro RS is 5 years warranty iinm..

So far only seen these 2 brands bro.. So not sure about other brands. If you found any place around puchong pls let me know too bro thumbup.gif

Plan to get 1..

The issue has always been the rubber inside that deteriorates rather than the steel braiding outside it. Sometimes kind of skeptical if they used much higher quality rubber hose or just braid the regular hose and charge more for it.

Well no, I also changed calipers, pads, fluids but you can change the hose only. Last time I bought Speedz Icon Sunway but install at other workshop.

Does it help with changing the caliper? I'm planning to change double layer servo and test it.

SS hose doesn’t improve your braking, it improves your “feeling” of braking, makes our brake less rubbery/spongy, but your braking performance is still the same.

You want better braking performance, change the rotor/brake pad/piston.

I saw before some cross or drill rotor. Does it make the braking better?

Changing caliper is actually the biggest improvement for brakes. SS hose only improves the feel just a bit, sometimes even not at all if your original brake hose already pretty good.

Don't do the drilling, no use at all but actually can risk cracking the rotor. You can change to slotted ones but that also only improve the initial bite a bit and will accelerate the wear of the pads.
