  1. search function is working for me, so bare with me

    ok guys im trying to run my brake lines on the 38. running a full mustang 2 front end set up stock mustang calipers and i bought new rubber lines from the locak parts, but they are to short and wont allow the wheels to turn lock to lock. any one have any suggestions as to what lines are long enough to work. I.e. a make a model i could go by to purchase at the parts store, t.i.a.

    Most good shops can make lines to size, or just mock one up with sopme rope and take it along with you, see what they have in back...

  4. FYI

    Your brake lines should run forward past the spindle and spring and mount to the frame just under the upper control arm. If you do not mount it this way the potential for failure is higher than normal.

  5. On my same application, I told my auto parts guy what each end looked like, and how long it needed to be.

    can you move the bracket on the frame that holds the other end? that's what I did when the ones I got for mine were a bit short
