Does this look right to you?

I appologize in advance the car is filthy but nevermind that.
Is there something missing here?




Or is the ABS cable designed to kind of just sit there on the front spindle?



Is it normal for the metal brake line to just be suspended bearing the weight of this whole assembly?
The metal line keeps breaking, I bought Goodrich stainless steel brake lines, but up front they only replace the rubber lines, not the metal hardline to the caliper. Is there any brand SS line that go the whole way to the caliper?

It appears StopTech SS Brake Line will also replace the metal hard line as well.

It seems to be the case, will try ordering the Stoptech lines, hopefully the goodrich lines can be refunded.
I appologize for the gigantic pictures initially, didn't have time to resize them on friday, but it should be sorted now.
Does everything look right?

Well...I’ll let you compare to my old
Pic when I did ohlins install. My car is still in the shop so I can’t take the most recent pic. That was installed in 2016, all stock brake lines.

Ok, from looking at your original pics, are you sure you have the hardline bracket bolt properly to the lower part of the coilover? There should be little to no movement for the hardline, if there is then that is probably why your hardline keeps breaking.

Yeah, so I didnt realize the braket is supposed to bolt to the back of the strut. After looking at it the other night I found that bolt holding that bracket in place behind the strut had snapped off on both sides. Hope fully a zip tie will do the job until I figure out that to do with these coilovers.

Thanks Moladin

Would anyone be able to chime in or have a picture of the ABS wire? Is that meant to be bolted/attached somwhere?

ABS wire is snapped into the plastic retainer on the spindle, and goes back to the wheel well

Brake lines are hard lines from the caliper. As mentioned, they are bolted to the strut lower by two bolts, one from a simple isolator type clamp on the hard line itself, and the second from a sub-assembly that holds the hard line and flexible line connection.

I would remove the strut assemblies and clean them on the bench and extract the broken bolts, and drill/tap for new ones as necessary. Its going to be much easier than trying to do so on the car.

Before "TSX101" does all that, he will probably need to figured out how the bolts snapped on both sides. That is nearly impossible unless they were improperly mounted, as there should be little load on the brackets. The brackets are simply there to hold the brake lines in place.

My Ohlins doesn't have any place to hold the cable retainer for the ABS line, so I just leave it floating as seen on my pics. No wear on them as far as I can tell.

Good luck!

It's possible they were over tightened, or just rusted and failed.
I unbolted the lower mount, rotated the strut body grinded down what was left of the bolt and welded on a new stud. We'll see how that holds up but have also installed new SS lines from stoptech so there will be less load on the bracket. I'll see how it holds up.
