Galfer SS Lines leaking!
I just installed new Galfer SS lines front and rear. The rear is great. The front, however, is seeping fluid from the right side connection, where the supply and crossover lines go into the caliper. From what I can tell, the leak is from between the caliper and the supply line. In order from front to rear is the caliper, the supply line, and the crossover, just like the stock setup. I've tightened it tighter than I feel comfortable and it is still leaking. I took it apart, switched up the washers, tried the stock washers, put the lines in the other order, and nothing changed anything.
I put the stock lines back on and everything is cherry. I tried both banjo bolts in the caliper to see if either was off, and the Galfer bolt has some play in it when threaded all the way in. The stock banjo bolt has no play in it. Could that be the issue? It still allowed me to put plenty of torque on it, but is still leaking. Any info would be appreciated.
Now I'm concerned because Galfer's website says they will honor no warranty unless installed by a professional mechanic. Anyone have any experience with them? Thanks!
