    Take a look at Macromotive.com, they are priced right and have free UPS ground shipping for the rest of this month.

    Napa sells a longer than stock rubber line. I bought two of them over 2 years ago and haven't had any problems. They were about $15.00 a piece. I can look up the part numbers if you want.

    Yes, these are the longer ones. The front ones are 25 7/8" long. I don't have an exact measurement for the rear, but it was plenty long enough too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
