    i believe the autozone # if you used 3/4 ton calipers is 77028 for flex lines.

    go to their website and plug that # in, i think that's it. i think i'm gonna buy a bending/flaring/cutting tool set so i can manipulate my own brake line.....

    Grant,
    i just finished the disk install. i used the front brake lines since i needed longer ones for a 4" lift. funny cause i ran all over town looking for someone tor fab them. the answer was right in my hands. one side of the brake line is a square block, fits nicely on the cady calipers and the other end is a female 3/16. i used the hard brake lines from my 12bolt and pieced everthing together. i just need to bleed the brakes a bit more and some shock mounts :-)

    ARQ.

    Yes, it's almost too easy. Stock rear hardlines thread right into stock front flex lines and the stock front flex lines connect right to the calipers with banjo bolts.

    I've got the stainless lines from TSM on mine. They work real nice. For the hardline, I notched my diff cover and bolted the block to the cover then bent my own hardline. I used the little clips that were already on the axle to hold it all together. Nice, quick, and clean. I played with about 3 different options before I just did the easiest I could find. Turned out well. You'll need a flaring tool and a tubing cutter, but autozone has got them for cheap. You don't need a whole lotta slack in the line, it doesn't move much at all.
