Make them yourself. Get a double-flare kit, a good tubing cutter, and a cheap, simple bender, and some extra line.

Get a 4WD Hardware catalog they have all of the parking brake cables (there are three) and parts you need. It may be a spendy way to go, but they also sell stainless brake line kits (pre-bent/fittings/rock guards, ALL of the hard lines) for about $160. Very good quality.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Need to replace brake lines i think...

I bought my stainless kit from 4WD Hardware. I've only replaced the back 2 lines to the wheel cylinders so far, but they were a perfect fit. Waiting for warm weather to attack the rest. Its nice to know that rust will not have me or my son out there doing it again in 20 years. They are sort of expensive but worth it.
