First time upgrading brake lines to SS and not disappointed. Bought my 2006 Scion tC brand new and from the first mile it always had soft, spongy brake pedal feel. When time came to replace front pads, decided to get the StopTech SS lines as well. Now the Scion brake pedal feels as solid as my other car (stock Lexus). Only negative is no catch-hook on the caliper ends - like the stock lines have - which would have prevented the line from turning as you torque down the banjo bolt, a minor inconvenience. The SS lines don't actually improve stopping performance per se, but they do give the driver confidence with both the solid pedal feel and that the fact you're getting braking power sooner with less pedal travel. My wife noticed the improved pedal feel also, she thinks it's just the new pads (lol).
