Its not close to the frame, it’s at almost the same level as the frame
the point was I didn’t want to run AN/steel braided caliper hoses though. Id Like to run the standard rubber hose
I can’t go under the frame, my wishbones would hit the line, I already have it on top right now and really don’t like the look. Only other option...
So I’m running gm metric front calipers, rubber hose and boxed stock frame I can’t seem to figure out what I need for through the frame fittings,...
I think the next step is to take the side over off yes.
I agree it seems like it has what it needs to run!

I’m not sure what more details are needed, I’ve already contacted many steel shops and all of them do not have it. They all seem to have 7/8 ID...
yeah something a 7/16 bolt can fit in and maybe like 7/8 OD? Something sorta thick but I only have MIG
I did find something online but it only had...
Like I said the bolt is 7/16, so... 7/16
Hey guys, havnt posted in a while. I’ve been looking everywhere and I can’t seem to find this. The simplest thing, I need some steel tube for Sbc...
yeah probably because that bend around the corners bends down and around. it was a bit of a chore for me to get both those bends in a solid piece,...
