Has anyone came across a disco 1 brake line kit that comes bent to oem specs? I need to replace some pieces and thought I would do the entire system. However, when I bend my own lines it resembles my kids pre-school drawings. Lol it is not pretty. I am not finding any. Thanks for any information you can pass on.

I should post a picture of the brake lines on the XD that I recently purchased. There is a 6" loopty loop at the calipers on each of the rear wheels. :rolleyes:

I used this one:


yea, not pre bent but the copper lines are WAY easier to bend. You can probably buy OEM pre bent but thatll cost ya.
used the same one, super easy to bend

Hello Good People,
Another good thread started I see.
I have noticed may have a slow brake leak somewhere in the middle on the drivers side. I need to replace a section and was looking to find out what size line our trucks use. Is it 3/16 OD?

T.I.A.

Yes (never too late to reply, right? ;) )

For anyone who may find this post, Oreilly Auto parts has a nice selection of brake lines. The steel lines look a lot like OEM and are not too bad to bend. They also have copper nickel lines that are easy to bend.
