Default 00+ SSEi Brake Line Lengths Needed

II'm debating on upgrading my SSEi brakes with the front F-Body calipers and stainless brakelines. I took a look between my GTP and SSEi and think the brake lines are longer on the SSEi.

Does anyone know the length of the front and rear brake lines?

I'll be sure to post up my findings on the upgraded calipers and SS lines all around for others if I can get this solved.

You are looking for total length from master cylinder to wheel?

Ummm....I guess I'm confused. You have a 2003 SSEi, but you need someone to measure the rubber brake hoses on an SSEi?

Let me clarify...I could try to measure the length while on the car, but because of the bends etc it'* tough to get an accurate measurement. I was hoping that someone could find the "spec" of the lengths from a service manual or parts look up.

Thanks

OK, and I had already checked the information at AllData without finding a length listed. However, you can do this. Take a string and tape it to the starting point on one end of the hose. Then guide the string along the length, and mark where the other end is. Remove the string, and measure from the mark to the end of the string.

Or stop by your local parts store.. ask for the lines (which are probably a stock item) and measure. Thank them ...lol
