    Wow, these things are almost too pretty to put into my truck!!! LOL!! They're stainless steel, and the complete kit was $330.00 from Summit racing through Ebay!! I will (hopefully) get these babies in this weekend. Will post pics too.

    $330.00 for stainless steel brake lines? Are they gold-plated or something?!

    X2, that does seem pricy for s/s brake likes. What did the kit include??

    Well, this is all 7 of the hard lines - 2 that come from the master cylinder to the ABS module, 2 that go from the ABS module to the front wheels 1 that goes from the ABS module to the frame and 2 new lines for the rear axle. Did the rear tonight, not too bad. Had to unbolt & lift 1 side of the bed to snake the new line, but pretty simple so far.

    Ahh, it included hard lines. Ok that makes a bit more sense...

    Ok. When removing the old brake lines, I had to disconnect all 5 lines going into the ABS module. Looking at the front of the module, there are 3
    lines going across the top row, 2 lines in the bottom row. Top row drivers side goes out to rear, I'm guessing the top middle goes to driver side front, top passenger side goes to passenger side front. the 2 bottom are the lines coming from the master cylinder, not sure which goes where. I had to remove them all to gain access to the rear line, as there was not enough room to swing the wrench far enough to be effective. Anyone have experience with this?? Maybe access to a diagram or repair manual?? I'd appreciate the assistance!!!!
