    Where can I get these? I looked on Advanced Auto's site and they only have the rear rubber line that has the distribution block attached to it. I need the hard lines that go from there out to each wheel cylinder. Is this a dealer online item or can they be found somewhere locally??

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    Unfortunately, either the dealer or LMC has them.

    I checked out this site and they either have the original equipment pre-bent lines for 73-82 or you have to buy an entire vehicle hard-line kit for 73-91 for $219. are those the only two options or am i missing something?

    Another option is make your own, a bender, tubing cutter and flaring tool is needed, then you can just get brake lines at any auto parts store.

    yep. both my 12 bolt and the 14bff were 3/16" tubing. if at all possible, id measure what kinda lengths you are needing and try to buy a pre-cut & flared piece. just makes things cheaper and easier.

    When doing that make sure the threads are the same. Some are metric.

    You can buy hand-bendable lines for the rear, although you may not find some that work out to the exact right length, just add some creative bends. :)

    They already have fittings on them, so it's pretty easy to do.

    What he said.

    Measure the actual length along the existing line, then buy the parts store hard linethat is equal to or longer than thhe existing line. Then, just hand bend it, Like dyegear said, if you have too much hard line, some creative bends to take up the slack will take care of it.

    I just did my front and rear hard lines friday. I bought them at advance auto and got all 4 for $17. I think I got a 30, 2 40s, and a 50. I cut the two rears and the right front, borrowed a double flare tool and all seems well. I just bled everything today and no leaks.
