Replacing rear brake line
I am thinking of replacing my rear brakeline on my ZJ, from mastercylinder to the rearaxle.
It has started to rust and I want to replace it before it breaks when I really need it.

Anything special I need to know? I know some years of the ZJ needs to have the abs bleed with a computer, but mine is a 93 and dont have OBDII system.

Or should I just take the easy way out and let a shop mess with it?
I have messed with brakefluid so much so I am kind of allergic to it now...
My hand swell up and starts to itch bad..

i think that year can be jumped, but ALL of the ABS systems require a dealer scan tool to bleed correctly. in your case it would be a drbii tool.

Perfect time to remove the ABS pump unless you are particularly fond of it.

Wish i could remove it but it would fail the yearly inspection without it. If a vehicle came with abs or some other safteysystem its illegal to remove it.... Trying to get no abs in to the papers is almost impossible and would cost alot of money + i would have to get papers from jeep that says its ok to remove the abs system. After that i might get it trough the inspection. Even then i could get pulled over by the police and get a fine for not having abs...

Time to bring up this old thread.

Does anyone know what size the stock brakelines have?

I am going to replace every one of them with stainless instead so i dont have to worry about them ever again.
I found stainless brakelines at summit racing but i need to know what sizes i need.

The ones on mine are 3/16". Presumably the same was used on international models . . .

BTW, You might consider using the (teflon?) coated lines as a cheaper alternative to stainless. Stainless also does not bend as easily.

I wanna say 3/16 when I did my rear lines.

The time now is 01:10 AM.
