    man doin a brake line on a 77 chevy SUX BIG TIME. i guess i might of bent the hard line for the frnt brakes and it is a pain to get ti to line back up. its so much easier on the 80's because of the little braket hangin off the side compared to late 70's where it goes through the frame. i know they make these drop brackets for the hard line so u can use ur stock brake lines with a lift but i dont know where to buy just the little drop braket. does anyone know where i can get them??

    Go to the junk yard and pull them off a wrecked blazer, I was at pic n pull today and I was looking at those brackets on an 84 blazer, they just bolt on to the bottom of the frame.

    just do not reuse the brake line.New ones are cheap and well worth the money.Nothing worse then wreckin a nice truck just to save a buck or two

    I'm sure I have an extra set left over from a lift kit. PM me your address, and I'll send them out to you. :D
