When it comes to hoses for the front F14 system, original parts are in effect. Venom specifies using OEM hoses for their positive routing and robust design (the stock hoses are made with Goodyear 5052 material). Also, braided hoses do not like to twist, and in a front suspension application where steering is involved, unnecessary stress is induced at the connections with the braided lines. On the other hand, we realize braided hose does look cool, so those lines can be used if they’re your preference. Venom knocks $60 off the price of the kit if you opt out of using its rubber hose.
