Hey any of the guys with d2's can you snap a pic of how you have your front/rear brake lines secured?  

Thanks

You want me to go pull a wheel off and take pictures!? Sounds like a lot of work. But maybe then everyone can tell me how mine are wrong lol

D2s are a brand name for coilovers made for our cars. Not sure if they still in production or not.
Rears were a direct drop in. Fronts, you had to cut up you oem struts and weld on the bottom portion that held the spindle.
Search on here and you'll find plenty of info. Break lines, there are oem rubber still available and a few companies make braided steel lines
I got blisters on my fingers!!!

I looked at the brackets... then looked at the setup and couldn't make the connection. I know some people have used them, just not sure how/where. Maybe the braided lines made a difference for me?

maybe?  I have old tep brake lines (4 piece kit that eliminated the hard pipe on rear and additional fitting).  I'm thinking of grabbing a full set of new SS lines but need to find the hardline or make new and make some hangars from the struts

Wondering if you might have a good guess of the dimensions of the brake plates that mount to the struts?  They are nla :(

ya looks like that's how I kept the TEP lines out of the way.  I want to go more "back to stock", it's not like I'm going to buy lines from TEP again.

Just grab a chunk of brake line and flare fittings to make your own around the strut piece
