if this is a Daily Driver, then you will need to bleed your brakes after each line. If it is NOT, then you can do a section at a time just make sure you dont deplete the master cylinder or you have to pull it and bench bleed it.

If you are doing this a section at a time for a Daily Driver, look into a set (front and rear) of SPEED BLEEDERS. I bled all 4 of my brakes, by myself in 10-15 minutes. The stock fittings/nuts at the ends of the lines are 3/8" (not sure what size going into master cylinder, id have to check at home). The line diameter, I am not sure.

Before doing anything measure each segment and make a map for where each goes. You can get pre cut/pre flared lines in many many different lengths so there will be no need for flaring. The long run from fron to back will need a union joint in the middle because you won't find a piece long enough already flared. Also, the one running to the right front wheel is easier to get in place if you make it in two place and join it.

Take out one piece, use it as a template to bend the new one, install, proceed to next section.


When bending go slow to avoid kinking and invest in a $10 bending tool.


The whole job should not take more than 2-4 hours then bleed the entire system until clean fluid is throughout.

Where do the hardline brake extensions go? Do they mount to the caliper and go up towards the frame or they bolt up in the frame bracket and go down towards the caliper? Thanks!

??? They can only go one way. There is a square end the banjo bolt goes thru, and the other end joins into the hard brakeline up on the frame rail. It should be obvious unless I am totally missing something. Perhaps if you post up a photo of your extensions it may be easier to figure out, because I must somehow be missing something.
