    Default need brake line for the 87 s10

    Well my buddy called me and said on his way home he had no brakes. i picked him up and we got back to his house. looked underneath and discovered a leak in the rear brake line near the gas tank where the line goes through the frame. any place you guys reccomend getting a new brake line?? 87 s10 2.5 4 speed (not sure if it makes a difference lol)

    If you have a tubing bender and a glaring tool, you can get universal line an make your own. Most places even have lines that already have the fittings on them. All you have to do is bend them. I would highly recommend getting a piece of rubber fuel hose to put over it so the frame doesn't rub a hole in the new line. You will probably have to cut it open down the middle to put it on like wire conduit

    thanks for the info guys. ill probably start by removing the line to see what I have exactly. didn't really want to do it yesterday as their was brake fluid everywhere and im not a fan of brake fluid dripping all over me lol What kind of flares do you guys use on the lines of these trucks? just a single flare or double bubble?
