Default Rubber brake lines for my rear axle

I'm not sure what rubber lines I want to run on my d44 rear axle I am running 1/2 ton chevy brakes and I don't know what is the best rubber line to use
I could go to the parts store and sort through a bunch but I'm sure someone already has and I could save some time

Just buy a universal -3 hose in the length you want then attach a -3 to 3/16 flare adapter to one end and the appropriate fitting for your caliper on the other.

I just did this to plumb the discs on my new ford 10.25 axle....i used braided stainless hose and the local parts store had everything in stock

This is a nice length, the NAPA site has lots to choose from. The search I used on the NAPA site was "brake hose rear" just look at the text blocks to make sure its what you want. Hope this helps

Allstar has a pretty good selection of "make your own" hoses. You can get them at an autovalue, not sure where else.
