brake lines

Ok, I put a reverse shackle kit and a straight axle 60 in my 97 F-250. I have searched everywhere for front extended brake lines. All the ones I can find are different than whats on my truck. The drivers side brake line has a block where a line comes out of the side and goes to the drivers side caliper. Also there is a line coming out the back of the block going to the passenger side caliper.
Anyone know where I can find the correct extended brake line?


P.S. I'm only 34 minutes late for a Tuesday post

your talking about only using one brake line from the truck, down to the axle, and then the brake line splits on the axle to go to individual sides, right?
check autozone. seriously! i got a bitchen, prebent line that was cheap, and fit perfect!

i then got a custom brake line made from keithflux here on the board, but latley he hasnt been making them, so check the vendors forum

Nope, I know exactly the oddball setup he's talking about. Hard line comes from the master into a block that is part of the drivers side brake hose(secured to the frame on a bracket same as a TTB F250, same idea as a TTB F150, only a bracket instead of the coil bucket) then it has a flex hose going down to the caliper off of the bottom of the block, and a hard line coming off of one side of the block, and running over to the bracket/flex hose on the pass side. Both flex hoses are secured to the chassis.
As for where to find longer ones, I have no clue.
