Just curious, are the lines then same for the same years F150's and Broncos? Or do you need to get F250 or F350 specific lines?

Also, what are the prices on the Russell and the Crown? Any links?
Not sure on the cross-fit... IIRC the Crowns were around $110 for
a set of 3 (2 fronts + rear).

Ill probably get the crowns or russells but im still waiting on the pitman arm to come in... custom lift plus custom steering equals more custom parts

I would imagine the F-150/Bronco lines are slightly different than the F-250/F-350, but I just checked Crown's website and they don't have anything listed specific for the OBS f-350.

Just installed the rear Crown line today, will have to do the fronts tomorrow.

I was surprised that the T block had to be mounted upside down which meant that a proper tubing wrench cannot be used unless the block is unbolted from the tube.

We'll see how the fronts install tomorrow.

I was disappointed that the frame end of the rear brake line didn't key into the stock bracket like the factory one did. And a little surprised there was not a provided way to secure the VSS wire like the factory line did.

On the front lines my biggest challenge by far was removing the factory spring clips. My fault completely, not the kit's. Wish I didn't tear them up removing them because the supplied clips were too thick to be fully installed and the factory clips might have worked better. I also had to flatten one side of the brake line body slightly with a hand file to fit into the stock D shaped hole. I'd rather have to flatten a spot then have them rotating within the brackets. Though I had to decide how the lines were to be routed and twisted so that I could file the flat spot at the correct location.

As far as longer, good looking brake lines go, these meet that expectation. If your expectations are factory fitment then you should find you a local "hose guy" and make yours longer. AND I suggest you to figure out how to remove those dang front retaining clips!!

Bringing this one back to life:

My caliper stuck on my 97. I do have a lift on it and I suspect my lines are done hard and soft.

Is there a stock replacement hard line?

By hard line, do you mean the steel ones? If so. Ford my still offer a prebent one for an asinine amount. Inline Tube, Classic Tube and the like offer Stainless prebent ones for a small fortune.

Or, if you want something that will outlast the truck and doesnt brake the bank, look for copper/nickel alloy lines. Easy to bend and HARD to kink. And are NEVER going to rot out

Brad sounds like you got the goods. Where are you finding the alloy lines? I don't mind bending them.

Jegs has a good supply. Some of the kits have fittings. How is the line sized and what fittings?
