Re: Brake Lines?

Inline tube is probably the best resource for hard lines, but all the rubber ones I had made locally from a shop that specializes in servicing industrial hose parts.

Just make triple sure of your order with Inline Tube, since they are extremely expensive on their shipping.

Re: Brake Lines?

I returned a Inline tube kit as I didn’t find it was close at all.

I went with a kit from classic tube and it worked out well for the front but if I was to do it over again I would bend/flare my own lines.

It’s not that difficult and you can run them exactly how you want. You will have to do some reshaping and bending of the pre bent kits anyway

Re: Brake Lines?

I used the nickel copper to bend my own lines. Easy to work with and flare. One piece runs from the back axle almost to the junction block.

I second the nickel-copper (NICOPP) lines. As Paul said, it bends easy, flares easy, and won't rust. I bought mine on e-Bay.

I pretty much made all of my bends by hand and flared it holding the flaring tool in my hands.

Re: Brake Lines?

Appreciate all the replies, just ended up taking it to the shop as time is limited and the HOA is a nightmare. no wrenching on cars in my neighborhood, and unfortunately my garage was built to fit a 1990 Nissan Sentra.

Re: Brake Lines?

Wow, no working on cars? I've only had limited experience with HOAs, but I don't think I've ever had that stipulation. My truck is still on homemade stands (I ended up spilling some transmission fluid this past week, left a stain and hope to wash it out when I can move the truck), and have done body work, all in the front driveway, no one has ever told me anything. I know at least 1 or 2 neighbors have done similar, one of them banging out dents from some old Camry fenders for a few weeks straight.

It's asinine, I'm tired of all the people around me *****ing.

I told the neighbors that i sold it! HAHAHA, cant wait to see their faces when it comes home and is LOUD and sounds amazing.

Once it runs and drives I will be able to do some little things here and there at my house, it just needed way too much to get going to be able to peacefully get it done without getting a nag or a letter form someone.

68 Suburban's used two different routings of the brake lines with 1 style running outside the frame in front and other style running inside the frame, the styles are interchangeable and if anyone needs photos of the correct routing for the style version made by Inline tube for the 68 Suburban just email and we'll forward pictures of the install route.
