I can't find a replacement. Lordco has the piece that broke, but they don't have a brake line connecting piece small enough to plug into where the old one went into the brake caliper. Where to go to find such parts? 89 burban with a 6 inch lift.. on older axels. I have the original line. I'm gonna upload the pics in a sec..

Oh yea, sorry. Front right. It ripped the end off the hose.. the part that attached to the mounting bracket on the brake side.

Above is the end that broke. Lordco has a piece that will replace it. Along with a new hose. It's just the hose.. will not fit into the other end. They don't carry any with threads that small. (below)

you should have access to the rest of the site now. Welcome[cheers]

like I said, try Mopac in Langley, I tore my brake line same way you did. I just brought the parts into Mopac there and they gave me all the connections I needed. I believe the line of parts is made by Russell

wierd brakelines
if you want to run braided it is almost always better to buy the adapters to AN-03 so you can run off the shelf braided lines from any manufacturer
the manufacturers name should be written on the line (canadian requirement) so replacement shouldnt be that hard

lordco is prolly the worst place to go for brake lines, take the broken brake line and goto performance parts plus behind princess auto in langley, you can get brake lines 6 feet long and any type of fittings you want on either ends, they are cheap as hell as well, i got 2, 4` braided brake lines with fittings for both ends for 90 bucks,

btw welcome to the site,
