ok searching on piarate4x4 on the FAQ this is what i found

Brake Lines

Toyota Fittings are 10mm x 1.00 thread with an inverted flare.

ProComp #7210 are Longer than stock Stainless Steel brake lines. (set of three)

One piece 23" long replacement brake line for the front is Napa #38688
[EDIT: This turns out to be a front line from a 90-96 Nissan 300ZX if you wanna get one from somewhere else.]

The flexible rear brake line (goes from the hardline to the rear axle) is commonly used for extending the front and rear brakes lines since it has one male end and one female end. So when these lines are swapped inline with the stock lines, and you will have plenty of room for extra lift and flexy suspensions. The Napa #38256 is the stock length (19" long) rear flexible brake hose. Napa #36881 is 11" long if you need one a bit shorter.

I run the stock lines

I cut the bracket off the stock location and welded it to the bottom of the frame rail, and just ran the hard line down to there.

if your front line are still in good shape just get a couple rear line to lenghten them like stinky mentioned. I would trust stock rubber lines way more than cheap stainless braided crap. Seen too many of those fail.

ya, good quality braided ones are usually ok, but everyone seems to cheap out on them for some reason:rolleyes:


I'm a cheap bastard so i went with doubling up the stock stuff instead of risking cheap braided lines

speaking of braided stainless steel lines...anyone got a good source on em? decent ones? i need female/female & male/female for my 98 4runner.

nsor has the tacoma ones, but those have banjo fittings on em. i think banjos are on the smaller brakes, i dont have em on mine, and im upgrading to tundra brakes and they dont have banjos either...is the toyota fitting of 10mm x 1.00 thread with an inverted flare a standard fitting of brake line that i'd be able to get at a lordco or napa? (stainless not rubber)

thanks
