    What you have sounds like an incomplete kit. You should have 4 copper washers or aluminum(sp?) if you got 2 hoses. Or 6 washers if you were give 3 hoses. I put on some extended brakelines a month ago. With no problems.
    The trick is Have rags and plenty of them.
    1. disconnect the nut on the inside of the frame (easyest through the hood.)
    2. be sure not to strip the nuts.
    3. take off the hose off of the caliper I think 7/16
    4. You will notice that the connection on the caliper has small washers on them, that is where the new ones go. one on each side. try to keep the fluid off of you tires It may mess them up.
    The zip ties are to hold the break hoses to the shocks body.

    *NOTE Break fluid KILLS paint and cloths*

    Good luck KEN

    DANGIT it's not a bronco!
