    Everyone here just lied to you, it's all misinformation. :crazy: But don't blame them, everyone spreads this rumor, and it lead me to buying the incorrect set of brakelines.:doah:

    I had a '78 D44 with a 7/16 banjo bolt originally on my truck. I bought extended lines for them. Before I went to do my D60 swap, I was told I needed different lines. Wrong! My old ones work, the new 10mm ones don't. My D60 was from a bone stock '78 1-ton. Just plain old K30, not CUCV or anything.

    I believe it was more of a year thing. Pre 78 or so would be 7/16, post 79 would be 10mm. Think about it, 10-bolts and D44's can use the same calipers, the outers are the same.... It was a year thing, not an axle thing. Just a coincidence that they switched in the era of the 10-bolt introduction. Just my theory anyway. I can, however, GUARANTEE that my D60 has 7/16 banjo bolts, that is not a theory.

    Well all that I'm saying is that the old saying "D60 and 10-bolts use the same brake lines" is a falsity.

    D44 - 7/16 banjo bolt (unless the calipers were swapped)
    10-bolt - 10mm banjo bolt (unless the calipers were swapped)
    D60 - 7/16 for 78 and earlier, 10mm after that.

    he didn't ask if they were the same he asked if he could still use what he had with respect to brake hoses from superlift.

    also, I had called superlift last year when I put my d60 in and the guy there said that the front hoses for a 10b and d44/d60 shared the same fittings. all that mattered was using the correct gaskets and banjo bolts.

    Hmm...the lines I used on my 10 bolt are now bolted to my 60 :surepal:

    Maybe instead of making an ignorant blanket statement and calling everyone liars (the ones who are using 10 bolt lines on their 60),maybe say in some cases depending on year they could be the same or different :thinking:

    I'm not talking about malicious lies, and I'm not calling anyone a liar. I was just stating that fact that the information is wrong in a blunt and joking manner. Please don't take it personally, I just don't like misinformation. It lead me to making an unecessary purchase. My blanket statement was probably wrong, but so is the blanket statement that all D60's use the same brakelines as a 10 bolt. I just don't want to see somebody else wasting money on brakelines that they don't need, or thinking that they have everything they need for a swap and then finding out otherwise at an inconvenient time. I like trying to get everything together before a project, and hate little setbacks like that. Just trying to help, sorry if I hurt your feelings. :rolleyes:
