Braided brake lines

If anyone knows you would.

If you see how the brake line is routed you will see that you do not need to replace the rear line even with a large lift. Jump under the Jeep and you will alsee what i mean.

I know.
Really don't need any for the rear.
But I have them on the front and rear. Just not the little short ones one the ends.
And they feel left out.

I can't find any. Maybe no one makes them.

No one makes them because they're not needed in the rear.

Depends, are your flex hoses able to be removed from the hard lines?

If not, then it isn't very clean looking to run long flex line from the T block over to each caliper. If you can remove them, then getting some short ones made and adapting them to the hard line and banjo fitting isn't that difficult.

For the record, my line of choice when it is up to me are the Currie rear flex hoses for the disc brakes they sell. Good quality, just about the right length and able to be adapted to most anything resembling calipers on the rear axle.

Yes to your other question, those parts will work fine.

Yea. I have a short flexible line about 8in long from the caliper to the hard line. That is attached with a bracket at the spring pad.
