Clean way to secure brake lines to coilovers?

Just curious how everyone has secured their front brake lines to their coil overs? The stock front damper had an integrated bracket with two threaded holes to secure the brake line. My skunk2 Pro-Series has no such feature.


Does someone out there make a bracket for this that I am missing? Or is there some other clean method? Not looking to use any zip ties


Thank you. I have a 98 GSR btw

How much boost would a wood chuck boost, if a wood chuck could chuck boost?

With a hammer and a chisel you can knock the bracket from the stock shocks. I am using the brackets on my bilstein shocks.

Going off the picture, it looks like your shock bodies might be too thick for it to fit?

I am going to try and find some old shocks at pick n pull. I agree, probably too thick because mine have a step up in diameter. I think I can make it work though, thanks for the tip 👍

OK so I went to pick-n-pull. Grabbed a set of brake line brackets from original stock front struts... As expected, they were too small on the inner diameter. I ended up cutting out ~3/8" of material out of one side of each bracket. These skunk2 pro shock bodies measured almost dead on 48mm. I ended up pressing in a 48mm diameter disk from a bearing press set I had in the garage... this expanded the bracket out to where I needed it to be. I then used the vise and re-formed the shape using the 48mm disk (see picture).


It actually clamped on fairly well by itself, however I added a hose clamp for extra security. The bracket doesn't budge at all. I like how it turned out. Thanks again aw614!

Thank you. I am going through and replacing all worn suspension bushings, tie rods, etc. Upgraded a few things (extended ball joints, skunk2 LCA, new hubs and wheel bearings with extended studs). I just painted the subframe and knuckles with epoxy paint (roll bar and chassis), and simple green on the rest

Nice. Looks great. I havenít had the chance to redo my fronts. I did do my rear suspension a few years back. Waiting to get a house with a big garage. Then I can focus on reworking the whole car. Need to lift all 4 corners up and tear apart subframe and dash. Iíll take my time this next phase I want to go in.

The phase you speak of is exactly where I am at lol. I did a turbo k swap into mine a few years back, I recently pulled the motor out to fix stuff like this and make it perfect this go around. Basically everything that bugged me is getting addressed. Old suspension components is just one of them. I'll work on it all winter if that's what it takes, I don't feel like buying all season tires anyways.
