Longer Front Brake lines

Ok, who makes custom Stainless Stell brake lines for ZUKs? I have a Missing link setup and I currently have a set of Goodridge long lines that are about 22", but I need another 5" to really flex the frontend and not worry about the lines. I dont want to cut the upper line brackets and I dont want to buy Glenns Rubber longer lines. I have found alot of brake line places and called a few but none deal with anything ZUK.

Thanks

Find a place that will custom build them, Here in colorado springs we have a place called whistler bearing that makes custom brake lines.

Re: Longer Front Brake lines

Hmm. I'm not sure if these guys make the length you need, but here goes.
Petroworks.com, calmini.com, spidertrax.com, zukisouth.com. I've spent the last 4 months building my rig and found these places to be the best out there as far as supply and personal service.
Hope this helps. Big Bear Zuk

Re: Longer Front Brake lines

well, if you have the 22 inch version, then you allready have Glenns basically, and you also have the longest factory brake lines available. We have a place locally called Fluid Connectors, they use Earls lines, like most everyone in the world, unfortunetly, I won't run stainless lines, they break way to often in my opinion, and they will not stretch is cought by something. Try and get rubber ones, lie if you have to and tell places its for your dune buggy...

Re: Longer Front Brake lines


Avoid stainless lines if at all possible. We've seen (and experienced) many stainless brake line failures on the trail. They're cheaper for a reason, much lower quality. You'll also NEVER find them as an OEM application most likelyt because vehicle manufacturers don't want the dangerous liability of stainless lines.

You'll find a couple 4WD companies out there who really are serious about wheeling (like us and Brent at Trail Tough) who refuse to sell stainless lines because they are an inferior brake line. Also, most stainless lines are only about 3" longer than stock. With a taller lift than 3", this is BAD NEWS!

Even if you don't buy lines from us, get rubber lines from somewhere. The standard rubber line is 7" longer than stock which is certainly what you'll need with the Missing Links you have on there.... and much safer.
