    Mudduck,
    My understanding is that the 10 bolt and the Dana60 has the same size diameter banjo bolt. THe Dana 44 has the larger diameter bolt. The 10bolt banjo bolt is actually a 10mm bolt. There are difference is threading though. Mudzer is going through this now i'm trying to find some banjo bolts for his 60 calipers. He needs to change out his brakelines from the 44 style to the 10/60 style.
    If anyone knows if the 10 bolt banjo bolt and a dana60 banjo bolt are the same...pm me or Mudzer. The MotorMite part number for a 10 bolt is 313940. This can be found at AutoZone. But the computers and the motormite catalog don't even list a dana60 bolt size.

    After a little looking around...2 people here claim that the 10 bolt and dana60 banjo bolt are one in the same. So those brake lines must work out.

    I can varify that the 10 bolt lines will work. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I have put 2 different sets of lines on the front of the Mouse and both were ordered for a 10 bolt front and bolted to my D60 calipers.

    thanks again everyone got the lines i needed today. wasnt trying to be cheap and just throw my truck together but couldnt find the steel braided lines local without ordering and waiting a week and needed to check brakes on truck before next weekend. if these lines work out wont need the others save more money for a front locker or a winch /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Hey, Im borrowing an old trick from the Dodge Boys. I plan to buy a pair of the extended brake lines from Napa everyone is always talking about which are meant for a rear axle application. I will use this setup in front and rear. You run a single line down to the pumpkin, then hard lines out to just near the calipers, then short lines to the calipers. This eliminates the problems needing a super long brake line to the calipers. The Centerline of the frame to axle Centerline is the shortest distance traveled during suspension cycle. This should be the ticket. Plus, I can buy all the parts locally. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
