    After doing a search on this site, the only part numbers I can find are for extended front brake lines, and not a rear brake line. Does anybody know the part number for a reasonably priced extended rear brake line from a place like NAPA or Autozone? I need a rear brake line that is only about 4" (or so) longer than stock. I already bought a set of extended front brake lines from a guy on E-bay that sells scratch-and-dent SuperLift products for a really good price, but he does not have any extended rear brake lines curently. This is for a 1 ton truck with a 14-bolt FF.

    I got mine from www.corksport.com.

    They do mainly sport compact stuff (I got the Blazer line with a set of lines for my Mazda) but talk to Travis and he can probably hook you up.

    How much did they charge for the brake line? I am looking to spend only about $20 for an extended rear brake line. An extended rubber brakline is OK for me, since my truck is mostly a mall cruiser and light trails only.

    He charged me $14 plus shipping for a stainless braided line with a red coating, 6" longer than stock. I think I got a discount for getting it with my Mazda lines but it shouldn't be too much more.

    I am not a paying member, so that forum is not available to me. I guess I am going to have to bite the bullet and pay up again (since some update issues have apparently been straightened out on this site, which allows me to host pictures with any digital imaging software I may be running on my PC). Thanks for the part number. I am going to do a search on the NAPA web site with that part #, and get a price for it.

    That is pretty much what I am doing right now with a 5" lift in the rear. I am getting ready to lift my truck to 8" in the rear, 7" in the front, with a 1" body lift (it allready has), this will give me an average of 8-1/2' lift all the way around. I am also planing on running 36/13/16 TSL tires with this combo.

    That sounds like way too much lift for 36s.

    Yea, I may revise my plans, and go with 7" of lift in the rear, and 6" of lift in the front.

    any industrial hose shop will make you up some brake line hoses. I work at one, and they can do anything you want, they can even put fiberglass (heat resistance) and stainless steel braiding over it for you. and they are usually pretty cheap. (atleast for me, i get everything at cost, i asked and they said it would cost me about 5-7 bucks (canadian))
