    I just bought the set from Summit. I like them.. However what I don't like is that I messed up the threads on the rear and instead of procomp selling me the piece I need they will only sell me the complete rear line for $70. That kind of ticked me off but what can ya do? BTW if anyone knows where I can get the brass block that bolts to the pumpkin of the rear axle I would appreciate it. Kinda sucks having this SS line and not able to use it.

    I don't mean to barge in on your post, but I got a question about the Pro Comp brake lines. I have 21/2" of lift, and am going to add the ORD 1" add a leaf for a total of 31/2 "s. I know I need extended front line, but do I need extended rear line too? Thanks

    the brake lines are good for up to 6" of lift. Just jack the body up and see you should have enough slack in the lines left

    Thanks. I learned here that I need new front lines. I found that was true this weekend. I was out shootin, and I was going threw a washed out area, that wasn't to bad. I got out and looked at my break lines, and most of the slack was gone. I didn't even have the swaybar disconnected either. So new brake lines are a Xmas gift to myself. I know I must have stretched them pretty far before. Kinda scary.

    I like the ProComp lines, I put them on my Jimmy about 3 months ago. Good times...other than the fact that I never could get the factory rear brake line fittings off...grrrrr. =\ Someday I'll have the time constantly soak them like mad with WD and they will finally budge. ;)

    Executioner.... They are DOT approved. Says so on the package and on a rubber tag around the hose itself.

    Ex that used to be the case but not for the past few years. Skyjacker's are also DOT approved. I have the ProComps on the '80 &amp; the Skyjackers on the '73. The front is the most important. The rear can be corrected, up to a point, with a new bracket because it is in the center of the axle not at the ends.

    ProComps are made for ProComp by Earls Performance who's been making lines for eons. Both kits have fron and the rear lines. Cost of just the fron new replacement OEM style were more than the complete set from ProComp. I've had mine on for two years and no problems yet even with the disc brake conversion. Wish I could find a set to mate up to the new rear calipers now....
