I have a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 hd ls.

Just replaced the brakes, rotors, calipers, and brake lines on the rear. 

There is a leak at the banjo bolt that I can't figure out why. It leaks when I try and bleed the brakes. I've tried everything to fix this, anyone out there that can give me an idea how to fix this or tell me why I'm having this issue? I'm desperate here!

Did you crush the crush washers?


I snug the bolt up pretty good, smack the bolt or the back of the socket with a hammer to "crush" the washer a little and then snug it up again.

I have run into this before with new washers and using the original washers fixed it. thats a good idea with the hammer but be aware it's not a solid bolt and it will break if over tightened
