Default Powerslots and Quiet Stops are awesome!

Untill you stop real hard 10 minutes after your done putting then in and a corroded brake line bursts.

After a 5 min. search and a trip to Advance, I already have everything I need to fix it a potential problem area. So, I'll have a ton of fun tomorrow.
I would have spotted these areas earlier but they weren't very noticable at first glance...
More than anything else, I'm glad this happened when I was just 'testing them out.'
Fun stuff.

I've been running that combination for 2 years now. Love it. Just recently replaced my front brake lines.

I repaired the one d/* line to the d/* drum today and bled the brakes.
It wasn't that hard at all. I just had to practice a little bit with the double flaring tool.
I still have to replace the line that goes to the p/* of the car to the p/* drum. It'* looking kinda bad but not as bad as where the line burst. I started to mess with it but decided to wait till tomorrow. I'm going to be at a shop anyway and a lift will really help.

Just to follow up, I had a chance to really get on them and there is a huge difference.
So the topic title isn't sarcastic anymore!
