That or the rubber part of your clutch hose burst. Happened to me and only figured it out after replacing master and slave FML

Buy the one trackspeed sells which is SS braid from master to slave, joining them in sexual ecstasy.

Local parts stores are cheap and usually carry a lifetime warranty. It is nice to deal with someone locally. Check your hose, and check for leaks at the master/slave cyl.

Alright guys, either the slave or master is shitting out again after 1 year and its time to replace/rebuild. 1. Are the ss lines different between 90-97 and 99+? Reason being I found ss lines at corksport for $18 (everywhere else is $35 or $45), but its for 99+. 2. Is there any info on reliability or lack thereof between different brands (ex: PowerTorque, Wagner, Exedy, Beck/Arnley)?

I think I'm going to go with a slave rebuild first, then master rebuild if that doesn't fix it. How bout the ss lines? Is there a difference in length betweem NA and NB?
