netninja clears up some misconception:
As far as I know, the 1G lines don't work for whatever reason. My question is whether or not DSS is still around. I heard something a few months ago that they weren't around anymore, if so, that sucks
Can anyone confirm this? Yes, I am too lazy to get off my ass and call. lol!
Just called DSS and they are still around! They were having problems a while ago, but everything is back up and running now. Even though the guy that designed the coilovers went to germany, they are still making them for our cars. They also are still selling the Stainless Steel lines for our cars too; same price as the 1G DSM ones, just FYI.

coltKalle recently sent PaulMezz an email concerning what he had found with regards to stainless brake lines for our little CSM's. He wrote the following:
I was curious about the Stainless Steel Brakes Lines and went to TireRack, plugged in the 89 Mirage turbo and got the following on brakelines: Not Available..... but read on to the next post.
I just checked and tirerack lists the original kit as still for sale. $230 as of the time of this post.

Archived post that brought about this search from mysteryman:
RRE said the same part number for 1st Gen DSM AWD is for the Mirage Turbo.
PMA1123 wrote this in response:
This statement is incorrect. I just bought my lines through RRE, and Mike W. (pedal car) custom made a set for a mirage turbo. The front lines 'may' be the same as a DSM, but the rears are not.
Just wanted to clear this up so nobody runs into any unexpected snags on their own projects.
What is now available from DSS is as follows.
The two piece steel-braided hydraulic lines dramatically improve the performance and feel of your brakes, giving a firmer more consistent pedal feedback. The results are shorter stops. Unlike lesser brands, DSS lines are sheithed in an ultra-high strength plastic liner to prevent abrasion of ABS sensor wiring and and suspension components. 1G 8 hose set.
