    ok, when i ordered my lift, they sent me brkae lines for the 1/2 ton, so my banjo bolt for the caliper wont fit through thehole on the brake lines they sent, and if i drill it ou, it would be even with the hole where the brake fluid shoots out.


    biggest one napa carries is 23", and the ones with the lift are 28"

    is 23" enough?

    the other problem is that it looks like the brake lines i got from the lift have a bigger top to them where it connects near the frame? arggggggggggggg




    any other options?

    thanks

    I think that 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton use the same size banjo bolt on the same axles. The banjo bolt difference is between 10 bolt and a D44. Someone will step in if I'm wrong.

    definitely wrong line for the caliper, probably wrong year or axle model im sure

    do some more research make sure of what you really have so you can get right hoses/lines
