replace stainless brake line?

I was working on my car and stupid me set the brake caliper with the SS line attached on the A arm (not tied up), well, of course i knocked it off and the brake line caught the caliper before hitting the ground. there seems to be no damage to the brake line, think it will be ok since it was a stainless steel braided line?? or should i replace the line?

2002 4.6L 5 spd. S281
S trim @12psi. 451 rwhp/425rwtq

You should be fine. They can take a good hit. Put it all back together and try it out some. Then check for leaks.

The stainless braiding may be OK, but if you kinked the teflon hose inside, it could be toast.
