    Stephen, I ordered many parts on Tuesday and included the info that my Blazer is on 3/4 ton axles - 14bolt rear and D44 up front. I forgot to emphasize that fact when I ordered the brakelines. Is there any way you could check to make sure that you have sent me the correct lines? I might not be able to get to the truck for a few weeks.

    Thank you. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Actually, the thing that really matters is what size the banjo bolt is in your front calipers. If you can measure that, it'll tell you for sure. It'll be either a 10mm or 7/16" bolt. Then we can check them to make sure.

    Well I went out and checked and it was neither a 7/16 or 10mm wrench that fit - it was a 1/2" wrench that fit the banjo bolt head. The front axle is from a '76 3/4 ton, K20 pickup.

    if you have a 76 axle, its a D44 which will be the 7/16" banjo bolt

    Everything arrived today, I'll check the brake lines as soon as I get a chance. The first thing I noticed was the 1/2 ton u-bolts - they won't work on the 14 bolt /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif I'll send them back as soon as possible for the right ones and let you know if the brake lines are wrong.

    Thanks for the quick delivery! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Yeah I called. I just ordered an additional set of 3/4 ton u-bolts and will keep the extra 1/2 ton. I can use them on the truck that is giving up it's 3/4 ton axles for the blazer - it's being converted to 1/2 ton! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
