Ok, I broke my brake line on my dana 44. I was running the skyjacker steel brake lines. This dana 44 is on my 94 Jeep YJ, it is a waggy front out of a 87..
Here is the question.. Is there any other application that will work. I was told that maybe a 83 or 89 3/4 ton suburban 4x4 breakline will work.. Any imput would be appreicated .

Support POR vendors: Keithflux. He's got a custom single line for $35.00 up to 24 inches and then adders for length from there. You pick the length, fittings, and color.

It's a top quality line, DOT legal, very nice. I've got a few sets sitting on my desk right now actually. I didn't get mine from Extreme Crawlers, but same lines.

It was not a length issue, When My jeep flexes, It was somehow the metal part of the brake line by the caliper. I did not give enough room when I moved my shocks to allow for the flex.. It decided to flex alittle more out on the trail than it did in the shop.. Oh well. As far as going to the hydrolic shop, I have thought about that, and I just may do that.. Still curious if the break line off of a 83 or 89 3/4 ton suburban will work though.. I have one here right now from the 83, and I have not had time to install it.. Not sure if it will work or not.. Just by looking, it may.. but with my luck.. ( It won't )

My hose shop will not build brake lines, but they have zero issues building -3 high pressure hydraulic fluid transfer lines.

I wish it was that easy. None of the places down here will touch brake lines.
Man, I'm glad my work has the fittings hose and hydraulic crimper! Saved me ALOT of headache! Anyways, hydraulic fittings use a different flare than automative brakes. You will need to get the correct adapters if using hydraulic line.

That sucks the big one! Around here the NAPA auto parts (and others) have assorted prebuilt lengths of hard line and for the flex I just go behind the counter and dig through boxes until I find what I want and then they look up the part number sort of backwards. Pays to be nice to your parts dude! :D
