Has anyone on here installed Goodridge SS brake lines on their V2? I installed the Rear lines successfully on my 2012 M6 Seda, but I am having trouble figuring out which way the front lines go in. The bracket on the brake line that attaches at the Shock bolt to lower control arm is giving me fits. Which way does it go? I really dont want to do this this twice. Any help or pictures appreciated.

That would be excellent. Ideally a Picture of the bracket and back of caliper to see angle of line where its attached to caliper. Much appreciated. I'm holding off until I know which way it goes.

Thanks again.

I'd be interested to see pics too. I installed my fronts in Feb and not sure it's in the right position either. The line is just dangling now since I couldn't figure out the bracket. Yikes! No real stresses on it but should be secured. Road Atlanta in a few weeks too.

I’m not sure what SS lines i have or brackets for that matter. I’ll see what I can see this afternoon.

I figured it out after test fitting the lines to full lock. Here are pics what it should look like between caliper and bracket. I did eventually hook up other end of line

They extend the rear lines where the bracket is on the passenger side - but a slight adjustment to the lines is all that's necessary. They're not needed as best I can tell.

And I also broke a banjo bolt. Thankfully I got the remnants out of the caliper and will have to source a replacement locally.

Torque values for Goodrich are like 16ft lbs, NOT the OEM 36 ft lbs.
