    my 14bFF didn't come with a rear brake distribution block (the one that bolts to the top of the diff housing) and the brake lines were shot. I can get the hard lines at the local parts store, but where do I get a distribution block? The dealer doesn't even list a part number!

    Duh! You are absolutely correct! Nice to learn something from a newbie every once in a while! Would make sense why my axle didn't have it!

    When I got my extended brake lines a LONG time ago, the block was already on the flexible line.

    Should be on the end of the line. I have a 28 inch long DOT rubber line /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    There are lines out with the correct fittings that you could hook them together. Some where in a brake post I listed the part number. I use a thin bungee to keep it out of trouble. It would be laying on the top of the pumpkin if I didn't.

    If worse comes to worse you can always go through the brass fittings bin at the hardware store and create three way adapter. But It does come with the new line. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
