Re: Did I kill my front brake?
Ed, those original OEM brake lines tend to weaken over time. With the added pressure you applied, the line may have developed some bulges. Also look very closely to see if any brake fluid is leaking anywhere. As others have said, replace the brake lines. Mine started leaking around one of the crimps on the small connection line on the right front caliper after an emergency stop. Hope you didn't strain yourself to badly getting the big girl on her feet again.
