    I picked up my brand new 09 DC LB and have a few concerns already.

    The truck is super nice, but the brakes are GARBAGE. Coming from a Acura RSX Type S owner and having driven my aunts Toyota Sequia. These brakes has no feeling and so god damn mushy. I don't really want to tow anything until I get this fix.

    I've been searching online for ss lines and can't seem the find what I wanted. Goodridge? can someone guide me in the right direction.

    are parts the same from the 05-08s? Also do the kits come with 4 lines or 2 lines?

    Also I already haul my R6 from my house to my buddy's house and the thing handle like crap. It's 460 and some pounds in the bed and that was it.
    I talked to dealership before I picked up the truck about getting the TSB done before I picked it up. They said no. Because I haven't experience an harsh ride. I race bikes in the summer time and I'll have my race gear and a trailer. It's going to be a huge issue if I can't even haul my bike on my bed without it handling like crap.

    Should I call the 800 number now or should I wait after I get some mileage on the vehicle?

    ^ No parts listed there for 2009 AC models. Probably the same as 2008 (Goodridge # 21155 SS kit) but someone here should be able to confirm? Strange that the note says 3 lines for 4wd and 2wd prerunners but the part number description says 4-line.

    Get brakes bled, under warranty before you throw $ at lines.
    Trust me.
