    I searched but couldn't find what I needed, so here it goes:

    I want to put rear disc brakes on my 14 bolt FF but I don't understand what I need for the brake lines that go on the axlehousing. I need them to be fastened sucurely to the housing because sometimes I drive through 2 to 3 feet of water. Is it as simple as running short front hoses to steeel tube? If anyone has a pic of theirs or a link to something helpful, it would be great. Thanks.

    Get factory front hoses and connect them to steel lines. use the clips that are on the 14 bolt to secure them to the housing. Make sure you got some kind of rubber between the bend over clips and the steel line.
