    Extended brake hoses that are 25 7/8" long will fit 10bolt from 89-2000 2wd chevy/gmc from right front but will work for both sides and can be modified to fit a D44.
    Part #'s:
    Napa - 38872
    Raybestos - 38872
    Auto Specialty - HB-86045
    Coni-Seal - BH-177767
    Carquest - SP8820

    I found this in a older post and I was wondering, do you buy 2 right side brake lines or both the left and right side, I am a little confused /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif
    Thanks

    You buy 2 of the #38872 lines. It doesn't matter right to left.

    How long are these? Can you put more than 2 of them together to get a longer line? I need a line that is 35-40" long for a D60 and can't find any... would this work?
    Thanks

    Yeah, I have the same question as PoohBair.

    I used the double brake lines listed above from Napa on my d44 front, but now have a D60 and need longer lines.

    Car Quest has them for $35 a piece. I might as well by the stainless braided ones for $80.

    People have had problems with braided lines. That's why we're looking for longer rubber ones.

    Yikes. I purchased two P/N 38872's from Napa for $34 total.

    I finally did the brake line & longer shock install this past week. On my old truck it was less than a direct bolt on because the frame mounting holes are different. But, drilling out the caliper end for the 7/16" banjo bolt was easy. The #38872 lines are about 5" longer than stock and so far work great. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    FYI....the OEM application for the #38872 is a '94 C3500.
