OE for a hose is just fine. For a caliper piston, stainless would be good.

Chris,
Would you use OE or stainless?

In reply to # 3473146 by chris Totally ok to just replace the hose! If the problem goes away, then you know that was the problem! Calipers rarely go bad around here. Back east that may be a more common problem.

When you say stainless, are you talking about the braided hoses? I use OE rubber.

Remember the song by Jonnie Cash. One piece at a time. Took twenty years to get a lokomobile. Didn't cost him a dime.

Every time you open the hydraulic systems you spend a lot of time bleeding.

So when in doubt replace a bunch of stuff.

If I was on the road I would do one hose. At home all three and the rear cylinders. Maybe the master. Four hours and good for many years.

In 45 years I have never been towed.

I would buy the best OE hose I could find.
