On my Mustang Im running stainless lines and o-rings (yeah they hold). However DO NOT put a rubber o-ring on the stock lines or you'll have a squirter!!
I heated them up to slip them on the end, then threaded them on the rest of the way. I'm pretty sure these lines don't use teflon seals, if anything, maybe thread sealant.

Does anybody know how to properly seal these steel lines? Maybe with teflon tape or thread sealant? thanx...
only 2 of the lines have teflon seals, the pressure and return into the rack
