    I swapped in some later model brakes from a srw one ton with 3.5" wide shoes. I got drums, backing plates, shoes, wheel cyls and cables, all new for $85 from this guy. He's local, so I didn't have to pay shipping.

    If they're too long, you need an older 1-ton style lines. I found that out too. The brake guy I go to said he could cut the long ones and make them work. I went to a pick-a-part and found one line. May end up cutting the other. Try a salvage yard for the shorter lines.

    yeah they are longer, but also they both link up to the left side on the 84 truck, and on the axles they come from each side, plus they have different attachments to link them together.
