Thumbs up

Needed extended brake lines after the SOA and did a search and found Scotty's post on extened brake lines.

The front brake hose on the '84 GW are 12" long and the front brake hose on the '77 Chevy, Suburban or Blazer are 19.5". The hoses are $ 19.99 each at Autozone with a lifetime gurantee. They bolt right up.

Custom is great but OEM is a lot better and availiable everywhere in case you need it.

How about the rear hoses Scotty?

Cool

well,i am also using the gm brake hoses in the rear. my rear brake setup is different than most,tho. my brakelines run from the turning brake to the frame above each rear wheel,then a flexible line down to the wheel,pretty much like the front.

if youe runnin a stock type setup with a single line down to the T on the axle,id just drop the bracket at the top, or raise the bracklet on the axle. [img]smile.gif[/img] you might have the local 'Zone show you a rear flexi line for the chevy-not sure if hed be the same or not?

glad to hear its coming together like you want it

I'm still a little confused after all the talk...doies the brake line work in the rear too? Has anybody had success on a "stock" brake setup? I'm running a 76 Wag with a 4" lift.

River...so that "kit" is in production????
Where can I get mine?

Yes a stock brakeline system is doable with 4" of lift... I did it with small drop-down brackets up front...

As for the shackle inversion kits YES.. they are in production...I'll email you...

[EDIT] I can't email you... your email addy isn't listed in your profile.... email me instead... I could have you a kit in about a week.
