    So I finally got around to replacing the front brake hoses on the blazer....they were playing double duty as brake hoses and limiting straps :eek1: . So Eric, aka Grim Reaper told me what to look for hoses off of. so I did.....and they worked great. So to save anyone else the pain of trying to look all this crap up here they are

    I just changed my front brake lines out too. I did the searches on here and found that the lines from a mid 90's 3500HD. All that needed to be done was reaming out the hole on the caliper end to a 7/16" opening to fit my older D44 calipers. The brass ends are pretty soft to drill, just needed to step up from a couple of sizes smaller than 7/16" before making the final pass with the 7/16 bit. Found the trick for the banjo end size adjustment here too.

    Once I did that, they bolted right in. Not trying to hijack, just figured I'd post up to link it together for ease of searching for anybody else...

    IIRC, that is only an issue w/ the D44, the 10B and D60 use the metric banjo bolt, and it fits.

    25.5 inches, I put a twist in the hose so that it would stay farther away from the tires. see the pic below.

    also there was no modification required for a 10b :D

    That's just the fronts. I'm using a G-Series van for the rear ('94 or something). They looked that up and got me the longest version of that at about 17" or similar.

    You don't touch the caliper. You only need to ream out the banjo fitting if you have a D44 axle/calipers. The banjo fitting is on the end of the brake hose that attaches to the caliper.
