Charlie don't surf..
'92 Ford Bronco XLT
Didn't quite find what I was looking for with the search. Does anybody have any recommendations, where to buy some braided brake lines. Thanks.

But all things considered, I think I'll run a rubber line in the future. They're more durable, and they tend to give a bit more warning before blowing apart on you.
Yeah.... in theory. I think this is another "in theory" item propelled by marketing hype (ala K&N). I mean I don't doubt that its' true.....but was it really a problem for 99% of us to begin with? Maybe on a high performance sports car driven aggresively, but I'd doubt that 99% of those on this board would ever know the difference.Damager said:rubber lines also expand when hot, that is the point of a braided line .. they do not. It keeps the line firm
I searched for my previous thread on this but couldn't find it. Note the white hole just to the right of the Pro-Comp logo.seboh said:(Keith lost one in Moab), the truck wouldn't stop.
If you can just move the hardline under the framerail you probably won't need extended anything (except for maybe in the rear).jermil01 said:Thanks, I guess I'll just get some extended rubber hoses instead of wasting my time aned money with the braided ones. It could be better spent elsewhere.
WTF are you talking about? I thought it was the later models that were setup like that. Mine has a dist block mounted on the frame below the M/C, and hard lines run from there out to where the flex lines attach.Keith_L said:Stock Bronco (at least pre-4WABS) used a simple line on the passenger side, but the driver's side had a tee integrated into it.
My father's 2wd '90 f150 has this. Dunno exact build date, but he ordered it from a dealer (not bought off a lot), and its got a Dec. insp. sticker, so id say 10~11/90.Keith_L said:Are you sure you don't have a tee at the start of your flex line on the driver's side?
I think that's exactly the problem, tho... I have seen rubber lines on vehicles go for 10+ yrs with no complaints. Usually they fail by getting a bubble in the line, or by showing cracks in the outer shell... then you replace it.akmud said:I had mine made at a shop here in AK. Their not cheap but I think that they will last longer than rubber.
Try a local hydralic shop.
