'92 YJ Brake lines need replacing, any estimate??

I just bought my YJ about 10 days ago and when i had it inspected, all it needs are shock replacement, and one of the break lines replaced, anybody know what it would cost? Ballpark estimate, I'm just trying to organize an order of repairs. Thanks

The brake line won't be more than 10 bucks for the part itself. So if you have a flaring kit and do the work yourself, only 10 bucks. Shouldn't be more than 100 for someone else to do it for you.

Thanks for the imput. Its a leak at the master Cyl. that is causing me to need replacing, but I'm not sure about hard or soft line. I would hope soft, because I've heard that metal lines sometimes need modification before they can be installed which is even more $$.

if it's off the master, it's a hard line
hopefully the threads on the master aren't bad

advance has a pretty good selection of pre-made sections in different lengths you just have to bend yourself:

You'll have to bend and flare the ends most likely. if you dont have a beding kit you can use something like a pully to give you a gradual bend without krimping the line. it won't be the perfect bend but it will suffice.

If your talking the short steel lines that go from master cylinder to the junction then 5 bucks to fix. Gotta replace mine this week. Soo easy! Get a steel line from auto zone, it comes already flared and everything

I would try and do it yourself - it's not difficult honestly, or just buy parts and have shop do it - call around for best price.

Agreed. Once you've done it once it's simple.

I was forced to replace both front and rear hard lines while installing a lift on my jeep. The jeep had a moderate amount of rust and the brake lines were actually rusted out. Once I bumped it, it starting leaking.

Anyway I went to YouTube school and learned what a double flare (bubble flare) was and how to make one. Autozone rented a flaring kit for $10, you can buy pre-cut hard line at different lengths that are already flared (however you will need to know the size you need and double check the fittings on the piece). For the rear I "spliced" the fix in and the front I replaced the entire tubing. I had never done this before, but it really isn't that hard. The tubing is pretty easy to bend ( I used hands and a tube bending wrench).
