While we could have reused our original hoses even with the larger 7/16-inch bolt, we decided to upgrade to a set of Russell stainless steel-covered hoses for '70 Chevelle disc brakes. The Teflon-lined hoses deflect far less than the stock pieces, producing a firmer brake pedal. We clocked the line at the caliper upward, since that appeared to be the best place to prevent the line from hitting the upper control arm or the spring during full-lock turns. This is an important point that should not be overlooked.
