I just received a brake line kit that I ordered earlier this week and will be replacing all of my hard lines this weekend. I discovered a leak in the rear driver's side line last weekend, and decided that since my YJ was 18 years old, I would replace them all.

I ordered the Omix-Ada kit (pre-shaped with fittings) on amazon and I received it within 5 days. My first impression of the tubing and fittings is pretty good, but we'll see how everything fits before I form my final opinion.

I'll post pictures of the kit and my progress of installation if anyone is interested.

Brake Line Kit Update

Here is what came with the kit. Left front, right front, line to rear, left rear, right rear, and two coiled lines.

Brachilius, I read your build post and noticed that you had the same kit. It installs pretty easy, just a little coaxing to get them to fit. With the new lines and fresh fluid, it stops much better than before. I'm quite happy with the results.

Brake Line Kit Update

I ordered mine from amazon - Omix-Ada 16737.50 Brake Line and Fitting Kit for $93.75 (free shipping). It was shipped from Classic Tube.

I saw the same kit on 4WD.com for $156.99 and on Quadratec for $109.00. You'll see it listed as Omix-Ada and/or Classic Tube.

Brake Line Kit Update

I just wanted to add that this whole project started because my brakes were 'spongy' and I wanted to bleed the system to see if that would help. Then I discovered that there was a leak in one of the lines and you all know how a simple project always progresses - that's half the fun. Anyway, now that the lines are good, and I bled the system until the fluid ran clean, my stopping power is incredible - I almost put my passenger through the windshield! Next, I need to put in some grab handles. :rofl:

That's a seven year old post, I doubt he will be by to answer anytime soon. Patience is the key, watch the fitting threads as you install.

I installed a stainless kit for my YJ. Yes, just take your time. Been a while, so I can't remember really any tips. I know I cut the old line out for the rear. I'm sure you tried installing it from either end of the Jeep. Hope you got it already.
