My rear brake line in the frame rusted away behind the fuel tank. I want to replace it before it blows out. I dont know the size of the line or what ends are on the line. Does anyone know anything about the size and the fittings. I called the local dodge dealer and they cant tell me what size the line is or what size the ends are.
It's standard 3/16" steel brake line. You can buy it in precut lengths, preflared and with fittings. If you've never flared steel line, it takes a little practice and a double flare kit. Most inexpensive way is the precut lengths. Your best bet is to replace the entire line from left front wheel to just before rear end where rubber line attaches to the steel line.
best fix is to buy a prebent stainless brake line kit and swap them all out, i plan to do mine soon the brakes lines are rusty, my fuel lines are just scary though!!! got some 3/8 stainless line for them i swear if you breath on them they would leak!!!
You should check all of your lines, I replaced all my lines and hoses, bought a 50 ft coil, green epoxy coated stuff, bends easy by hand, does not kink.
I eliminated most of the junction blocks and made straight runs. No more worries about blowing lines, happened 2x !
Mine was rusty behing the fuel tank. I just bought a new rear line from the dealer. They are pre-bent and it was only about $30.00.
