Stainless Steel Lines Question

Hey all,

I recently changed all my brakes to new Zimmerman Z blanks and Porterfeild R4-S pads. Broke them in nicely then maybe 200 miles later (not a DD) I had all (6) lines changed out with the ECS kit and the fluid flushed.

I don't know if its in my head but after the SS lines I fell as if my pedal is softer? Im confident in the mechanics work as he has multiple race cars and has done good work to my car before.

I figured since SS will allow little to no expansion compared to stock lines the pedal would feel much harder..

Not sure if Im overthinking this or not. Any ideas or input?

Just as an FYI - after driving a bit (not a DD) the pedal feels very solid and I am quite content with the outcome. I guess it needed a break in period.

nice.. I changed out my lines on Sat, the Middle brake line beat me down bad.. I skipped them for now but will probably will try to attack them again next sat.. did you use any special 11mm wrenches to get to the nut?. I had 2 short 11mm flare wrenches that I used, that could not give me enough leverage to turn the nut.
