    Search around the site and you should find a reference to NAPA part #s. They give you an option the ss braided lines, but I don't know the price.

    I put a set of front brake lines off of a 83 2wd 3/4 ton sub. on my truck with 9 inches of lift with a D60 front end. The lines bolted right up.

    What about for a 10 bolt front end ? What application can you make up for longer lines for a 5 inch front lift ?

    what is the big difference between an 88 front lines and an 82 front lines ? Length in inchs ? WHy would the 88's be long enough for a 6 inch lift while most people use extended lines for just a 4 inch lift ?
