    easy question, I did a search nothing came up so.......... What do i do to make my brake lines fit? I have to steel braided extended brake lines that hooked up my 10 bolt, what do i got to do to hook up the Dodge d60 brakes? I want steel braided extended ones so it would be cool to use my old ones, If not, Anyone got prices on some that would fit? (steel braided and extended) Thank you

    If the threads on your lines and the calipers match, I would think that all you need to do is just hook the lines up to the calipers. If the threads are different, you might need to have your stainless lines reworked and some new fittings installed. Also, if the threads don't match up, you might be able to find some sort of adaptor fitting at a parts place that would make your existing lines work... but I'd rather have a line-end fitting screw directly into the caliper if it were me.

    my dodge 60 uses a bango type fitting at the caliper, and the threads were the same at the frame.
    I am using the 90-93 stock dodge lines.

    could measure the bango but if you have everything in front of you so could you, or just test fit

    Instead of a parts store try a brake shop like a Midas or a Les Shwab. I had the same problem with the 8-bolt lugs untill I went to a tire shop.
