I'm having a problem with them. The bolt that holds the brake line on the caliper is the wrong thread.

the banjo bolt that holds the brake line in place, it will not fit, something is wrong. does the other side fit? Who did u get the kit from? Might have to give them a call to either swap it out or give you somemore bango bolts to fit. I didn't have any problems with mine, everything fit perfect.

If you want to add brake lights you will need one like this.

That is pretty neat. What is the purpose of that type of bolt? Do you put a
cottor pin in the hole?

the banjo bolt is a hollow bolt so the brake fluid can travel through it. if you go look at you bolt that holds your brake line on your master cylinder or your brake line on you caliper, that is a banjo bolt.

I did the brake light mod awhile back. I bought the banjo bolt switch from a guy on Ebay, unfortunately he is no longer on Ebay. But, this place does sell them

Also, here is a good webpage on how to do the mod, I followed it to a tee and it works great!! Brake Light Mod

The worst part is buy the LED bulbs. Don't get the cheapos from Advance Auto or anything. Go to http://www.radlites.com/led_strips_boards.htm
and scroll down to the bottom and get the round 3 wire LED, they aren't cheap, but well worth the price, and VERY VERY bright. Good luck!
