    I recently shortened my truck and now I am redoing the brakes and I had one quick question about this little L shaped bracket on the frame that holds the soft line just above the differential. I was just wondering how important it was if it even made it back on to the truck.
    Thanks for the help.

    I suspect it keeps the hardline from flexing, and break. That would be a giant lawsuit.:D

    It, or something like it is very important. Hoses are for flex areas, hard lines are not.
