Best quality pre bent brake lines

Hi Guys,

I am getting ready to install a completely new brake system on my 77 150 4x4.
Anyone have any input on a good aftermarket co. I am more then capable of bending my own lines, but I am not set up for stainless and for the amount of time it would take to make them perfect, I would rather buy them.

Thank you in advance,

Old 4x4

Yes , I checked their sites out earlier.

What I was wondering is if anyone had any personal experiences or prefrences.

I need to have the lines from the master cyl.to the metering block
extended due to a 3" body lift.

I prefer to bend my own lines, much cheaper, and i can route them the way i want, often times better than their original factory routing.

I had inline tube make all my lines (brake, fuel, trans. & power steering lines) out of stainless. The quality was fantastic! Fit perfect. These were stock lines but they do custom work also. Call their tech department. www.inlinetube.com

I bought brake lines and fuel lines some years ago from LMC. Probably the last time I ever bought anything from them. I may as well have bought straight tube and bending kit. As a matter of fact I ended up having to do that anyway because half of the two piece fuel line came nowhere close to fitting. I had to buy aluminum fuel line and bend for myself.

I would take Montana_Highboys suggestion seriously. In the meantime, don't throw out your old lines yet.

Not to beat up on LMC but their "stuff" just isn't up to par, it's like a slightly better version of the junk JC Whitney sells (IMHO) the saying "you get what you pay for" certainly applies to LMC.

Actually the saying for LMC is "you get half what you payed for" since there crap is so over priced.

If you do end up bending your own lines inline tube sells bulk stainless tubing and the correct fittings too.

Thats all good info. I agree about after market equipment always being off either a little or a ton, I restore muscle cars of all makes for a living. I think I will start with inline tube. I think their whole kit in stainless is about $160.00. I guess im just getting lazy, I just dont feel like making them!
