Brake lines
« on: September 16, 2016, 09:27:54 AM »

Fixing my broken brake line.  I opted to replace the stock rubber flex hose between the frame and axle and had a new line made by Parts Mike in Auburn. I went with a longer braided stainless line to replace the rubber flex hose and Y adapter.  I picked up some of the Polymer coated stuff at Napa for the hard lines from the Y adapter to the rear wheels.  My question surrounds the use of that coil rock guard that surrounds the stock brake line.  In searching online the opinions of it's actual function varies but in the end I'm still left wondering if its needed on the replacement line.  I see the value of it from a rock guard perspective, but not even sure where to get it locally.  I can order it in bulk from Classic Tube.

What have many of you done for Hard line replacement for the lines that go over the Axle?

I just ran the hard line when I did the 8.8, ran all braided when I did the 60.  I don't think the coily thing is really gonna provide much real protection.
