    :confused: I read on using an 88 c1500 front hoses, but went to the parts store and they said they wouldn't work or be long enough. Does anyone know the a company that makes them for our trucks? Need them to be long enough for a 6 inch lift.

    I got extensions at NAPA. I don't have the part number, but if you search, it's here somewhere.

    I went to Advance Auto and asked for front brake hoses for a '91 C10 and checked them against the stock ones for an '88 K5. They were about 4" longer and bolted right in. :D
