    Does anyone know any part numbers for longer brake lines from napa or any other source other than spending $100.00 for superlift? I have a 1983 3/4t suburban with a 14bsf with a corperate 10 bolt front. I have installed a 4" rough country lift and 35" tires. The local parts guy said he couldnt find any for this front because the ends were different than something like a blazer. any help would be great as i am on a shoestring budget. Thanks. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    go to the parts store and get the ones for an 85 chevy van.
    just be real nice to the counterperson and they'll help you out a lot

    I've got those napa front lines on with a 6inch lift and i ramped the truck on a loading dock the other day and there was still a little slack in them. (no sway) My tire was almost stuffed but i ran out of dock to drive on. I'm going to get that rear application number and see how much longer it is. Frizzlefry orignally came up with these front lines i believe.
