It still shows the '95 SS lines at $180/set. Not sure why so much more expensive for the '97-99's but there must be some differences in design. Unfortunately, have never taken any pictures but they fit just as OEM lines would.

I can't believe there would be that much difference between the two for the price difference. Any ideas abaddon?

No clue. We don't get really '95 anything in the shop, let alone a Riv (of any year).
I can admit though, that you guys have caught my interest, and I feel like I need to find out. I'll see what I can dig up....

This may be a long shot but does anyone know if the brake lines are the same on the car regardless if it has traction control or not? The kit on Classic Tube is only for cars without traction control. The picture of the lines look similar but wasn't sure if the routing was different, etc.

Link for kit without traction control.

I found some schematics and from what I can tell it appears the only difference are the lines that run from the master cylinder to the abs pump.  It is hard to tell without having them in front of me but they look the same.  Even the 95 looks the same depending on if it has traction control or not. Can anyone confirm?

No Traction Control:

You should be able to confirm by checking the part numbers off your schematics. I bet they differ.

I couldn't find the part numbers of the brake lines unfortunately.

IIRC GMPartsDirect.com puts the part numbers out for you, at least on the invoice.

I may be able to get to a 'fiche with the numbers.

I called Classic Tube again today and was told they do offer a brake line kit for a 1997 - 1999 Riviera with traction control. I placed the order and will keep this thread updated.
