    Howdy, looking for longer than stock brake lines for our Blazer... but I have had nothing but bad luck with the steel braided Pro-crap lines on my Jeep, does anyone know of another Chev application (maybe pick up or van) that came with longer lines than the stock Blazer lines? I would prefer to stick with factory or jobber rubber lines, for ease of availability... . Thanks for your thoughts & information. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I believe that superlift makes longer than stock oe rubber lines. Check them out if you need a part # let me know I should be able to dig one up.

    Some vehicles use this nice little line that just happens to have the right fittings to screw a stock line into and the other end will screw into the hard line. Using these I have a 28 inch DOT approved parts rear line. It will leave a 4 inch section of hard line in the middle but you can work around that. You may also have to do a little work with a file or a dremel where it goes tthrough the frame to make it fit right.
    The bendix part number is 88519

    lines off a 10 bolt will bolt to a dana 60... I believe you will need a new rear line if you weer 10 bolt to go to a 14bolt /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    What kind of new line? Should I buy a rear line for a 1-ton? Does anyone know if NAPA has 4" lift lines for this application?

    the napa numbers above are longer than stock, napa does not list brake lines for lifted vehicles, through parts books and trial and error, these numbers are what a lot of people use for 4 inch lifts, the 10 bolt and 60 are the same size banjo bolt, on the rear i would suggest taking your old one in and comparing it with the new part number to make sure all the fittings are the same size
