    Yeah, yeah, I know, I searched. Came up empty.

    So now I'm asking, what's usable for brake lines? I've got some Pro Comp extended brake lines in there now, but they're for the Dana 44. From what I can find, 10b and D60 lines are interchangeable, but D44 lines are unique. Is that right? I've also heard of people drilling out the fitting for a larger banjo bolt, but I don't know which lines take what size and which one is bigger. If I have to get another set of lines, I don't want to buy some expensive aftermarket parts. Is there a line for a C20 or something that works with a D60? Or are those all for guys with D44's?

    Or would these work? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Superlift-Rubber-Brake-Hose-Chevy-1987-91-Part-89365_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33561QQitemZ7985724233

    Check the post yer part number thread. I remember seeing the part number for extended front brake lines from Napa. That's what I used for my 8" lift and they have worked perfectly.

    Not really what I'm asking, I found that already. It mentions that it's for 10-bolts and says it can be modified to fit D44's. Doesn't say anything specific about how it's modified, or if it will work with a D60.

    My bad... If it helps, those lines for the 10 bolt are the ones that I used on my 60.

    So I'm guessing that the old dana 44 ones are the only ones that are different, and all the others are the same? Did some more searching, are the 10b and D60 ones 10mm banjo bolts, and the D44 ones 7/16? In which case I could drill out the 10b/D60 ones to fit a D44, but I can't reuse my D44 ones on my D60. I guess I'll make an order for those scratch and dent superlift lines. Those should be plenty long.

    My blazer has had 10bolts and a 44 front before and now it has a 60 with the same pro comp lines.
