Front Right Brake Line Length?

My '94 YJ needs new hard lines in the front, due to a leak on the right hard line. My local dealership got me a left side hard line, but seems to be having difficulty locating a right side hard line. I'll give them another day to come up with the correct brake line. Short of that, what length of brake tube do I need to purchase to bend my own hard line on this? I picked up new hoses for both sides, as I figured it wouldn't hurt to replace the 16 year old hoses.

Wow, the fact that absolutely nobody viewed this post in 8 hours just completely underwhelms me.

I doubt me viewing it will get you overly excited either....I have no idea what length the hard lines are.

BUMP!

At my local parts store you can only buy tube in 25' lengths (un-flared) which is probably about 16' more than what you need. That'll run you around $10, I think. Fittings are $0.29 each at my local Napa. The flaring tool is about $10 at Harbor Freight. Flaring brake lines isn't hard at all. Instructions come with the tool. Teach yourself a new trick.

Ditto...

You can buy 25' coils of it at the parts store. I always buy the pre-painted coils of line. Should last longer under wheeling conditions.
Just yank the old line(s) out and use them as a templates for bending the new ones out of the new line.
Do yourself a favor and replace the rear brake lines too. They are old and rusty too. Much easier to do it all at once.

If I remember correctly, I used about 40" of line. I picked up some of the pre terminated with fittings at advanced auto at the time. I didn't have my flair tool with, just my bender.

FYI, Harbor Freight sells an ac service line bender, blue, for about $7. It works perfectly.
