    I need the part numbers for those extended rubber brake lines from Napa or whoever it was. I also need the application discription. This is for the front end of my 85 Jimmy with a 10 bolt.

    Will these lines just bolt up and how far are they extended. I need roughly 4". Here's why:

    Last night about 12:45AM i was on my way home from a friends house, and I had to get on the brakes hard for a stop light, and I was slowing down and my passengers side brake line blew apart at the upper fitting. I lost my brakes obviously, and was lucky that there was nobody in front of me and the light was about to change so I coasted threw the instersection and slowed myslef with my tranny and gears. Thankfully I have 4.56's and they helped slow me down alot.

    WARNING: DO NOT BUY***
    The lines that blew where SUPERLIFT 4" extended Braided stainless steel lines. They blew right at the upper fitting.

    NAPA #38872 should bolt right up to a set of 10-bolt calipers. They're supposed to be fine for a 4 to 6 inch lift. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    BTW, stock brake lines are built to take a LOT more abuse than the braided stainless ones that I've seen. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I didn't actually blow the line, I blew the joint at the top of the line near the frame.
