    so my extended brake lines wont work on my dana 60. I did some research and found out that 77-78.5 calipers use larger 7/16ths banjo bolts. Can i drill out the block to fit the larger banjo bolt or does anyone have a part number for a extended brake line with the correct size?

    I drilled mine out, the 60 i have is a didge unit so it has the bigger banjo bolt. I ran it that way for awile with no leaks but had to get longer lines anfter the 52" swap so put the correct lines on. Its just a hole in metal, make sure you have good washers on both sides and it should be fine.

    Since 10bolts and D60 use the same lines (banjo bolt), this should help.

    Dodge and Chevy 60s are different in a couple ways, the banjo bolts are not the same for them, dodge used the 7/16th, also the calipers are different, dodge used a 1.25" thick rotor and the calipers wont open big enough to accept the 1.5" rotors chevy used, trust me i went back and forth to the parts store to know
