    Whats the best way to fix this bastard? I don't think replacing the whole line along the frame is the best way, maybe cutting the end off and putting on a new one and trying to find a good flare tool to fix it?

    Where/which fitting?

    I saw a good quality flare tool at NAPA the other day.

    put a new one on cut if off and double flare another on its not hard to do...
    double flaring kit is super cheap..
    even a new piece of line if needed..dont be scared.. just do it, youll be fine..


    good luck

    Its the rear fitting where the rubber hose and hard line connect to go down to the axle. I have a flare tool but last time I used it, it didn't do so great of a job.

    I'm not too afraid of a brake line, I rebuilt my 700r4 myself :D
