    I just finshed installing my 3/4ton 10bolt 8lug.It was out of a 85 K20.I also installed the 1"ord zero rate add a leaf on top of my 4" suspension lift. My promblem is my brake lines that are on my 1986 K5blazer are to short and the end that bolts to the caliper is different then the one I need. I cant find 3/4ton brake lines only 1/2ton.Are the lines the same?? I would like to get the stainless steel brake lines. Does anyone know a part number???

    I got my original set from National tire. 35 each. they were stainless braided. But the longest they had was for 6" over stock. I had to have a set made at a local Hydrolic shop for the 9" now. cost me 80.00 to have the pair made. There is a napa O.E. hose thats longer than stock. i don't know what the part # is though.

    Napa lines about $14 for the front I believe.

    Front lines PN:38872
    Rear lines PN:4138068

    Or I have heard you can use 88 C1500 lines. On the autozone website it listed them as 20+ inches long, but they are more than the Napa lines. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have the AZ lines, but the Napa ones look longer. I'm going to get the Napa lines and try them I think.

    I wish someone had some different part numbers or a way to cross the numbers to something else. Neither AZ's or Carquest's computers will cross those numbers.

    I think I had the same prob you are having, I just swapped in a 86 K-20 3/4 ton 10 bolt into a half ton. Are the ends different at the caliper? The Earls/Pro Comp/ORD hoses PN 7220 are square at the ends and the caliper mounting well is rounded, the stock lines had the ears rounded off which is what I did to the new ORD ones, I used a band saw to trim and a grinder to clean it up, worked perfectly.

    I thought for sure I'd posted this at least a few dozen times by now...

    I'm pretty sure Napa's numbers are either screwed up or something because when I looked it up the one you wanted to buy was the Raybestos #38873 hose (left side) because it doesn't have a metal bracket on it for mounting. I don't know. I just know that when I bought a #38872 brake hose it came with a metal bracket on it and was a couple inches shorter.

    Front brake lines:
    These ones are for the left front of a 1994 2wd 1 ton and are around 25" long. $13.99 at Advance Auto. Napa wants $16.69.
    Tru-Torque (Advance Auto): H38873
    Napa: H38873
    Bendix: 78227
    Raybestos: BH38873
    Wagner: F124600


    The actual right front one has a piece of metal on it for mounting. It costs $8 more than the others. I bought one and decided not to use it since it is shorter. The part numbers for it are:
    Tru-Torque: H38872
    Bendix: 78259
