    Hello all i need some help. I bought some koni yellow shocks I did notice they don't have any brake line brackets. I have looked at some forums and i have found you need to use the brake line brackets from your oem shocks but i don't have any oem shocks I don't know what to do. I don't want to go the the junk and buy some. A friend advised me to leave the brake lines there not screwing them but idk is it ok with no problems? Is there any one willing to donate me there oem shocs for the brake line brackets? Thanks

    Zip ties are God sent. I've seen that done with the brake lines numerous times. In fact, whenever I get my full coilovers (giggles like a school girl with anticipation) I am sure that I will be doing the same.

    To the OP, just get creative and do not tighten them too much, as to cut off your fluid flow. That would be bad. haha Don't forget you can cut the ends, so that whenever someone looks down there, it doesn't look ghettofabulous. :ph34r:

    Why are you scared of the junk yard?
