Rear brake hose

639 Views 6 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  JEEPN
Just curious as to what some of you have used to replace the rear rubber brake hose that attaches the brake linea long the frame to the T-fitting on the rear axle after you've lifted your vehicle? The rear of my Jeep recently went through a SOA, and the rubber hose is nowhere near long enough to attach back on the axle tube. Is there another vehicle that has the same fittings, but longer hose that I can look for? Any info is appreciated to get a lengthened hose that will work.

I use those stainless braided lines on mine (front and rear), you could get the correct length hose and fittings for your application for around 20 - 30 dollars.

Good luck!!!

Just find out the size of the fittings....i think 3/16...and the length you need and theyll send you one a brake place...theyll know what size..about 10 bucks..... - a few....
Hardest part is bleeding the whole thing...


Go to a tractor store that makes hydrolic hoses and take your old brake line in an dhave them make a line to your specs...its cheap!

I mounted a bracket to relocate the T juction off the frame and hang down a bit. Was a cheap temperary fix until I get some longer lines, bracket came with my lift kit.

Most Fastenal stores can get anysize hose for you. They custom make them in the disribution centers. You can also buy any kind of fasteners that you want.

From the land time forgot

Up here in Maine they will not make brake hoses at a hydraulic shop, too many liabilities. We tried at several places and all laughed us out. If you take the fitting sizes to a decent parts store, they can look up the length for you and order one larger than stock. It's how I got my OEM (off what I have no idea) 36" long front brake lines. The rear should be just as easy.
