Fuel line hose

Last week I had a big problem. A hose that's at a 90 degree angle that connects from a fuel line to my fuel filter broke. Aka gas poured out of my jeep and I got stuck on the side of the road. Out a new one on and it happened again. It's so close to my shock that I'm guess when it compresses that's what punches the hose until it punctures like it did. Anyone else had this problem? Should I move my fuel filter for word? There is room for me to do so. Or should I get the shocks that have the side that compresses pointed towards the axle? Any input I would love! Thanks guys

Hey my name is Mike too and I have 95. Remember to get fuel injected rated line not just carburetor rated lines. Also the 90 one is a factory piece. So try at the stealership

Buying a new filter won't change where that hose is will it? Wouldn't I have to change the fuel line too?

After re reading your post I missed the shock hitting it.

The shock should not be hitting the line. Do you have shock relocation brackets?
When you replaced it did you use a molded 90 or just a price of line?

No relocation brackets. And I called the dealership and got the piece so I know for sure it was the right one

When was the last time you put a filter on it? Going on a limb here but maybe the filter is plugged causing the pressure to build up?

It's not a problem of pressure. I got the new hose from a Chrysler dealership. The problem is that there is maybe 2-3 cm of space between my shock and the hose. Anytime the shock compresses it pinches the hose. While it hasn't punctured the whole way though, it's only a matter of time. I think I'm gonna buy the different shocks and see if that works

im thinking you have an issue with the blacement of the filter. there should be about an inch between the hose and hose.

do your shocks have the metal cover over the shaft? if so get a set with a rubber boot or no boot at all.

Ended up moving the filter forward and cutting the hose on the other end and cutting the fuel line. Problem solved
