Banjo Bolt Crush Washers?

So I'm soon servicing the brakes, one of the things that will be changed are the banjo bolts and hoses and that includes replacing the crush washers. I read somewhere that it depends on the caliper material, I think, the material of which you need the washers (aluminum or copper).

Anyone know which is the right one for a 2006 WK Limited with stock brake system? What kind have you used and what kind of results did you have?

Before anyone says something about the parts I'm replacing and to check if they really need to be replaced in the first place, I already checked them and I already have the parts anyways, some of them are not exactly needing replacement but I won't take risks when it comes to brakes.

If you need more info about the parts I'm using to determine materials, just ask, I didn't put more info since I remember reading that only calipers are the parts that depend whether to use which material.

Thanks.

They are copper but I'm not sure of the size. Also keep in mind you need to torque the banjo bolts properly. IIRC it's a low torque number. I had changed out my rubber lines to stainless braided lines a few years ago so I have done the same thing.

Copper it is, I had aluminum too just in case but I guess I'll save them for another vehicle. For the sizing they are Crown Auto and model specific so it should be fine.

I have the service manual, all the torque specs are there right?
