    Exclamation Help AMS brake lines

    So I bought AMS SS brake line kit fir my evo x. Front went on perfect. The rears are the problem. The rear lines (for a lack of a better descriptor) have two female ends instead of one male one female. The end that goes into the caliper is the problem. Does anyone have experience with this? Has anyone had this issue? Am I missing something?? Any help would be appreciated

    Both sides are technically female ends. Just the one that goes onto the caliper requires a banjo bolt.

    Exactly. But my kit doesn't have it on the rear lines? Has anyone encountered this with AMS line kit?

    So I figured it out for future reference. The front calipers have stock hard lines to rubber lines. I replaced both hard and rubber when I only had to replace rubber. What I thought where the front lines (the ones with the banjo bolt ) go in the rear and the female ended lines go in the front. My mistake. Thanks to ams for correcting me

    How do you like the AMS lines? I'm thinking about picking up a set.

    Well they've been good. No issues at the track. They give me good feel, they also help with brake fade I've noticed at the track
