i always check brake lines.... by pushing my pedal as hard as i can!!
You're a wise man.
I do that too.
Usually it's a "Good!" but enough times to make it worthwhile it's been an "Ah Crap."

Ya i dont wanna take a chance with brakes!, the location of the broken line seems to be above the diff, havent looked into it yet to see if itll be easy to access or not, hopefully its not to bad, i blew the lineand parked it pretty much,

Also i cracked my coolant resevoir while replacing my rad, have a new one coming in next week or so, get that installed and re bleed the coolant system.... coolant gets expensive :/

Yeh, I don't think rotors need to be high quality, as long as they're steel and not warped. Pads, those you can spend on.
