Just a warning: My '93 Vette failed both front brake hoses. They have a factory defect that allows the hose to pull out of the caliper-end crimp. The crimp is a single crimp and I caught the right one just before it failed. You could see it had slipped about 3/4", since the hose is ribbed and where it slips out it becomes smooth. Examine yours. Aftermarket hoses from Raybestos and others have a sturdier double crimp. If you experience failure, it will occur under hard braking, so good luck...
