Stainless Steel Brake Line Problem

I got a pair of SS Brake line for my truck it is a 2000 f350. The passanger side brake line fit perfect, but the driverside is a whole different story...The driver side has 2 hardlines, one is the brake line, then the other line is supposedly for a breather or something. Anyone everyheard of this. I will take a pic this after noon so that you can see. 4wheelparts said that I have to have a custom one made.

Re: Stainless Steel Brake Line Problem

Doesn't sound like I had the same problem, but mine were anything but bolt on. I bought Skyjacker's set. The rear came with the common line before it splits out to the pass & driver side. It had the wrong size fitting on it, so I couldn't use it. The fronts had the correct fittings, but didn't fit into the stock bracket mounted on the frame very well. It wasn't too bad to modify, but I didn't expect to have to do anything just to put on some brake lines.

Are you talking about the front or rear? Mine is a 2000 also, so it's probably similar to yours, but I don't recall seeing multiple hard lines.

Re: Stainless Steel Brake Line Problem

it is the skyjacker front only... Take a look to see if on your driverside has 2 hardlines or not...

Re: Stainless Steel Brake Line Problem

turns out your truck is really a early 99 or was built then. That is one of the small difference in the early build trucks. Skyjacker, makes a specific part # for that truck, you need to return those lines and order the new set. You just simpliy have the wrong one.
