Front brake hoses


Recommended Posts

MiNi Beast,thankyou for the link. :cheers:

I work in parts at a Dodge dealer like BLHTAZ,

so I can order up the yj lines from here.

I will put some pics on here asap,promise.

I did put the xj axles under it after all,just finishing up.

Had a problem,left front brake is dragging/locking up,

don't find anything broken or binding,a tech suggested

brake hose may be collapsing,thus the brake hose question.

I can't find any other reasonable cause for the issue.

Maybe I didn't get all the air out after the swap?

Can that cause brakes to lock up?

If anyone has any clues,jump in.If more info is needed

to make a suggestion,let me know.

BTW,anyone needs to swap mj to xj axles,I a pro now.

And it ain't all that much fun. :roll:

 

 

Again,many thanks,

Tracy.

Not one of mine,maybe?

The locker deal.?I thought I did ok

on that one.Or not.

I'm learning,trying not to be a complete

dope.Learning to wheel,fab,weld,swap axles,

lock axles,all sorts of neat stuff.

Not a tech,a parts guy.

First Jeep.

Bear with me.

I'll be as good as the guys on Pirate4x4 someday. :roll:

Now,quit picking on me and

tell me why my brakes are f'ed up. :D

And seriously,thankyou all for helping me out. :cheers:

Don't mind me, I just like giving everyone a hard time, all in good fun unless your name is jt... :D

 

 

Souunds like a bad line to me as well. You have the bleeders on top of the caliper right? No joking see them put on upside down and this will cause air in your lines and well not work like there suppose to.

Thankyou. :cheers:

Ordered hoses for '90 Chev c10.

Will try them tonight.

I've been here off and on,I'm the one who got

the xj axles cheap,had a big discussion about

changing from 3.08 to 3.55.

I did it,locked them,just getting the bugs worked out.

3.55's are fine I think,I can use 5th gear again.

It left when I went to 32x11.50's, with the 3.08's.

Have to mount rear shocks better(long story)fix the

brake issue,and try it offroad.

Hopefully Sunday.

Will try to be here more on than off.

HopefullyI'll have something to offer up.Pretty good Mopar

parts guy,but I think BLHTAZ has ya'll covered there.

And I will take pics and post this weekend,without

fail.

size fittings.

You guys may be alright after all.

 

Its happened before :eek: ... We will all have to work harder to improve on this... :D :roll: ;)

Don't worry,yer doin' great. :cheers:

I will get SS brake hoses as money(spelled mama)

permits.For now,after spending every night for a week

and a half and all last weekend swapping axles,I'm sick

of looking at the bottom of the thing.

My eyes won't hold any more dirt or grease.

Ever slop a drop of brake fluid in yer eye?

Amazing how quick a creeper will actually go.

And I really feel the need to do some

low speed mud slingin'. :D
