  1. Hey all, Was under my 2002 Tahoe the other day and noticed rusted brake lines under the drivers side door area. They look pretty bad and I think I'm going to have them looked at. Has anyone had to have brake lines replaced on their trucks? Just wondering what it might cost. Thanks
  2. I have a 03' Yukon XL AWD w JL4, and like others my brake lines are toast. My plan is to replace everything from the combination valve down. To make things easier, I am looking at the NiCopp lines. I like the EZ-Fit kit, which includes lines that are pre-cut (not shaped) and flared with fittings. It's more expensive than bulk tubing, but it seems like it might significantly reduce the time and effort involved. I do have a couple of questions for those of you who have already tackled this job: Material: Any thoughts on NiCopp vs steel? Since NiCopp is much softer, should I go easy when tightening the fittings? I think the specs call for 18ft/lbs of torque. Does anyone have any experience with the EZ-Fit kit? Bleeding: I usually vacuum bleed my brakes. Do I need a pressure bleeder to do this right? Are there any tricks to completely bleeding the ABS module, or do I need a scanner to do it properly? Do I need to bleed the master cylinder, since I am starting below the combination valve? Routing: It seems like the difficult line is the one going from the ABS to the rear. I saw some articles about taking off the left wheel skirt to get a good angle on feeding the rear line. Do you have any other tips re the routing of the lines? I don't want to have to drop the fuel tank or raise the body. Tools: Other than the pressure bleeder, I guess I need a flare nut wrench (14mm?), is a flex wrench important? It looks like the access areas and angles on some of the fittings are tough. Am I missing anything? Any other advice? I have attached a photo of the existing lines. I am assuming that I don't have much time. Let me know what you think. Thanks for all of your help!!!
  3. I am currently in the process of rebuilding my 2003 ss silverado. It started with the brake lines and turned into way more. It's already lowered but I was wondering how low can I really make it without damaging the awd components. Don't have the money to experiment with different parts. It's currently lowered 3/4. Have tons on pictures I will add later.
  4. Just had what i believe is my front brake line blow out on a 2014 SIlverado 1500 LT (4WD V6). All of a sudden my pedal starts going to the floor, tried to pump it once and same thing so i'm like crap something is wrong. Was able to park the truck and look under and saw fluid pouring out by the brake line on the front right wheel. Thank god it happened as i was parking in my driveway (or at least that's when they leaked enough to stop working). Can anyone suggest a good replacement brake line kit for the entire truck? I dont trust any of the lines now, i want to replace them all with steel braided lines unless there is something even better than that.
  5. Hey I have a 2001 chev 1500 reg cab 8ft box and I have put in a prebent brake line kit but... I can remember how they were routed in the clips that hold the four lines and the wiring harness to the frame, if anyone has a picture of the clip with the lines in and can lable which are the master and which are the left and right to the flex lines it would be greatly appreciated Thanks Jamie
  6. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 5/13/2015 NHTSA recently issued a warning to those that live in the salt states about rusting brake lines. The upshot of the multi-year study behind the advisory was that GM and other truck makers installed brake lines that did indeed suffer corrosion in the states with rough winters where salt is used on roadways. The corrosion caused failures and accidents. These were documented in the report. GM later changed its brake line design to add a more robust protective layer. That is likely the most cost effective way to prevent trouble, but is it the best way? Some readers wrote in to say that replacing brake lines is inevitable and changing them as part of long term truck ownership should be expected. We looked for products that might offer a better than OEM resistance to corrosion and found that stainless brake lines are offered. Indeed, Dorman, one manufacturer, markets the stainless brake lines as a solution to this very problem. Looking at the Dorman site we noticed right away that the kits are primarily for 2000 to 2006 model year GM truck and SUV models. Exactly those that might be due for a replacement.
  7. Trying to find replacement brake lines for the front of my 96 2500. Both are rotten and have been repaired but its time for new ones. I know I can bend my own, but is there a source for replacement pre-bent ones? Haven't found em at places like rockauto
