Help! Bbk upgrade from non sport

Installing the rear akebono caliper and I've come to a road block. The point where the line is screwed onto the caliper is what I'm talking about. The bolt doesn't seem to screw in all the way so the line has space to wiggle and potentially leak fluid. Should I just add washers to remedy this?

Do you have both copper washers installed? There should be one on each side of the banjo bolt.

You probably need the shortened banjo bolts if you're using your stock lines. https://www.z1motorsports.com/brakes...lt-p-8488.html

Finally finished!

Akebono bbk with SS lines and Z1 slotted rotors. Also installed extended ARP studs and 15mm spacers in front for that flush look.

Almost ready for the track!
