Question 94 topaz Brake system

I got a question, I just replaced my front calipers near new I got from the auto wrecks, @ first the old ones were really bad, One side sticking really bad, I would apply the brakes I would get a really bad pull to the right, I got everything put back together & bled the brake system, I think either one of the front rubber brake lines needs replacing, feels like one of the fronts are still grabby after releasing the brake pedle, Any Idea's?

Thanks in advanced.

Replace the steel line and the rubber. I just had to replace mine because the moisture in the brake fluid rusted the steel and a bit of said rust made its way to the banjo bolt and clogged it. My hard lines are now all stainless or Cunifer.

If that isn't the problem, do it anyway, steel lines are cheap enough for the added insurance.

I highly recommend the Cunifer lines from Fed Hill. They sent me a sample and after playing with it, that's all I order now. The stainless I have is what's left over from a bike I built with hard fuel lines. Cunifer is way easier to flare and bend and I haven't had it kink no matter how tight I bent it. It's not even all that expensive. Just make sure you get the metric tube nuts.

Re: 94 topaz Brake system

Just little update, I got the brakes lines all done, All I have to say it sure feels 120% better, Those old lines were not good, Also since cheaped out, I got rotors from the wrekers, I am gonna either have to get them resurfaced or replaced, Ihave a bad shimy while braking, at high speeds, Low speeds nothing, All the brakes are set even complete brake job in the rear as well.

Thanks again guy for youre help.
