Has anyone had any experience using the flexible stainless lines up front? I had a ball joint break and took out the rubber brake line. Would the stainless one hold up better? or is it going to pull it out of the fitting end?

Would chaining the upper and lower arms together work in preventing this?

I dont think any type of line that small is going to hold up to that type of force. But i have the stainless on my ride and love how they look. You should use chains if you are worried about it happening again. Plus it would help releive some stress from your balljoints.

or you could limit the stroke of your front rams to the correct length for the front suspension so the ball joints dont get stressed, they're basically a spacer that drops into the ram.
