Quadratec SUCKS!!!

ok

i try to order my SS brake lines from 4WDH (get everything from them)

they have the rear but nicely tell me the fronts are on back order.

i order the rear and call Quadratec for the front (i hate dealing with them)

they say they have them so i order them

they charge my charge

i call 2 days later for a tracking # and they dont have one

dumbass phone person talks to warehouse person and replies "Oh, those are on back order, we added you to the back order list"

I reply, "When are they expected"

he says Mid April

I get nasty and thats all i will include in the post.

I have had order problems with these idiots before.

Meanwhile, i have no brakelines to install my lift this weekend. ARGGG

yes i could use the relocators but I would rather do it all at once.

DONT USE QUADRATEC. They SUCK

my .02

done venting no thanks

Re: Quadratec SUCKS!!!

hey Mangler did you see my post "VENTING"?
i had a problem with Q-tec and posted on their bulletin board after one of our fellow off roaders (MO. Mule) clued me in to it's existence.
within 45 minutes their rep was working on making me a happy customer
try posting there, it worked for me. i doubt they could fix back order problem but that's my story
best of luck

Re: Quadratec SUCKS!!!

Why not extend them. Use a junction block at the frame and make an extention to the lenght that you need. If you're not familure with working with brake line tubing then there has to be a friend that you could bribe to help you out.

Just trying to put ideas into your head.

Re: Quadratec SUCKS!!!

Hey Mangler - there's some stock brake line from like an 80's Omni or something that is perfect for a 4" lift - it's rubber still, of course, but this might be the ticket for you in the meantime... Sorry I don't know more - maybe someone else does...

Re: Quadratec SUCKS!!!

i am installing a 3.5" Superlift. I know that the kit comes with relocators but my lines look like they need replacing anyway.

thanks

Re: Quadratec SUCKS!!!

I did the napa thing as well, I got 22" lines from them that they had in stock, that was even for front drums!
Good luck, thanks again for the help on the bellhousing.
