    Why don't you want to use the ProComp lines? They are actually made by Earl's and, despite what I've read in this forum, have held up great. They are pretty long - with my 6" lift they still have lots of give, and 100% satisfied with them.

    I was thinking about the pro comp lines but do they make them for the dana 60 in the front?

    Here's the deal guys- A Dana 60 will take a 1/2 ton 10 bolt brake line. When I swapped my Dana 60 in, I traded Steve for his 10 bolt brake lines (89 K5) made by Pro Comp. I later wanted more brake line for the flex so I had my local speed shop make a longer set (34") for $65.

    Here is the local speed shop Shawn and I got our lines from, when I went in they had sets made up already in the 34-1/2 or 35" length (which I got), I don't remember off hand, anyway they are long.

    Cool. I didn't know they had a site. We should get the list of ends and SS tubing they used to make them so others can order the same thing directly from AAI and save some cash. This is always an issue with the Dana 60's. Here's mine strapped by a small but long spring that I got at Pep Boys. It stretches a foot to allow the brake line to move but keeps it out of harms way.

    My 60 is a 79 and Steve's is a mid 80's I think so I assume this will work for all. For the rear, a 14 FF has the same fittings as a 10/12 bolt and there's only 1 line.
