24/10/2003 12:08:01   Jim   Can anyone recommend somewhere I could get hold of some braided brake hoses suitable for my 96. I am also keen to replace all connecting hoses in my engine bay so any tips would be greatly appretiated.

They are also reduce the bouncy ride I experience of the roads of Sussex. I plan to have the springs shortened to lower the profile of the car and fitting the AVO's make this possible.
