    i used the hoses for a truck with a 10 bolt front...so if you ask for lines for a 88 blazer it would put ya on the right track.

    I have '72 pickup with D60 front. The D44 lines will work just the same. I used my old lines from D44 when I switched to D60, but now I am running Explorer Pro Comp extended braided steel brake lines. They gave me the slack I needed at full droop (for a 6" lift). My original lines were so tight at full droop they could be strummed like a guitar. Hope this helps.

    Will

    Did you guys have to change your porportioning valve? I'm planning on switching axles this spring with the 60 model and 14 bolt and was curious.
