Alright folks, need some serious help here. I recently swapped mid '70s running gear(outboard hub D44 and FF 14 bolt) and lifted in 4 inches into my '84 K5. Everything is hooked up, except for the front brake hoses. I am trying to use the front calipers on the Dana 44. The bolts that run into the brake hoses are bigger and they look a little short. I tried going to a wrecking yard and pulling some brake lines off a mid '70s GMC 3/4 ton, it didn't have outboard hubs and one brake line was cut off so I said screw it, not gonna work. Will Mid '70s brake hoses tie in with my '80s brake lines? Through my searches on CK5.com it looks as though I could use the brake calipers off of my old 10 bolt front end, then the bolts would fit! Will the brake pads I bought for the dana 44 work? will it have as much clamping power as the 3/4 ton calipers? Also, what can I do to make sure the hoses will be long enough at full droop? can I cut the little bracket holding the hardline in? Long story short, do I need to just buy $110 BRAIDED extended brake hoses? and if so, what's the part number? I'm sure this has been covered, but with my current internet skills, I'm having trouble searching the site for the info I need.
