changing brake line question
I will be changing my front lines to stainless steel wrapped in Kevlar tomorrow. I was looking at the hoses today while changing my shocks, the lines go from the caliper to a mounting braket on the frame where there is a junction to another line. It looks like there is a large C clip on the back side of this bracket and a small one on the caliper side, but the hose has a nut on the caliper side. Do I need to mess with these clips or can I simply loosen the nut from the caliper side of the bracket. I have never messed with brake lines before, done lots of brake jobs but never had to replace a brake line, Thanks Ford!!!
Also in 2000 did they have 4 wheel ABS? I noticed three lines going to my caliper assembly, one is the brake fluid, one is the vacume line for the 4x4, but I am not sure what the third is, maybe ABS sensor, or a speed sensor?
I thought I just had rear ABS but I could be wrong.
Thanks for the help.
