The master says to use Dot 4, can we use Dot 5? or should we stick with Dot 4? I am getting a set of 4" forward relocation brackets so I will be opening my lines to add the extension so I will need to add more fluid. thanks

Using DOT 5 in a DOT 3 or DOT 4 system without proper flushing will cause damage to the seals and cause brake failure.

DOT 5 brake fluid is not compatible with anti-lock brake systems.

DOT 5 brake fluid absorbs a small amount of air requiring care when bleeding the system of air.
