Went with G-Ridge SS brake lines and Amsoil brake fluid

I had Hawk Performance Ceramic pads on already which helps cut down on brake dust.
So I figureed a set of stainless steel brake lines and some Amsoil High Performance dot 3 fluid would firm up the brake pedal.
The SS lines did firm up the pedal a bit but I feel making the change isn't worth the cost.

Jus for everyone out there, SS lines do NOT increase braking power or reduce stopping distance. They only improve pedal feel. I put them on my truck because I tow a lot and wanted better brake feel.

Also, unless you are especially hard on your brakes. "high performance" brake fluid isn't going to gain you anything. It has a higher boiling point, so it resists fade better but at the cost of longevity ( it needs to be replaced more often)
