    I did search but still need some clarification.

    I am going to put a 4 inch Tuff Country lift on my 1991 Suburban (10 bolt front) and want to put on the Napa brake lines but wanted to make sure I get the right ones. Seems like there are two sets of part numbers that people are using.

    2wd Chevy/GMC 89-2000
    38873 or 38872 (front) 25 7/8 inch
    4138068 (rear)

    1990's 3500HD
    38622(L) 25 3/4 inch
    38623(R)
    38068 (rear)

    I believe most use the 38873 / 4138068 lines. I used them on my 88 10-bolt and as far as I know its the same setup on the 91 burb.

    The 38872 and the 38873 are actually a little bit different. I got one of each and eventually decided to take the 38873 back and just use the 38872 on each side. $12.99 from NAPA too.

    I used the 38068 on my rear when I did the 14bff swap. I got a 6" lift, and it's a perfect fit.

    Okay did a little more research.

    - 38873 and 38872 have a square banjo(?)
    - 38622(L) and 38623(R) have a roundish banjo(?)

    It sounds like either will fit though. I'll see what they have in stock.

    I just bought those for my 91 Sub 2500. I used 38622 and 38623, they fit perfectly...

    Thanks everyone,:D

    Picked up 38622(L) and 38623(R) they look like they will fit, but won't be able to get to it for a while.

    This is an old thread :D, but funny thing is I tried to put the Napa brake lines on just last week. Talk about procrastination :haha:. The bottoms of the brake line that goes on the caliper needs to be ground a little. It fit on my caliper after it was shaved a little, however I didn't like how the metal part of the caliper only faced up and not away from the tire so I had some custom ones made locally. I may have gottine the wrong ones :confused:.
