Default Brake Lines

Hello...I had someone from this forum work on my Jeep before. I don't remember his name, he lives in Troy (19/Livernois area?) and at the time he was doing a lot of work on Jeeps from this forum. Anyway, I wanted to get in touch with him to see if he can do some brake work for me so if anyone knows who I am talking about please let me know.

I have a 97 TJ and my front passenger side steel brake line is corroded and is just leaking. I need to replace it but just decided since it's all original that I should replace the whole thing. I've never done it before and it doesn't look hard but I just don't have time. I've read that it's cheaper to just buy the line and bend it yourself than buying the pre-made ones.

So that's what I need done. I live in Sterling Hts 18/Ryan area and if you guys know who I'm talking about please let me know. If he's not available anymore and you or someone you know can do this for me that would be great. Let me know, thanks!!!

Mike

They offer pre-bent lines for that? I use the parts store lines and mimic the bends in it. Will need two pieces since it crosses over under the radiator. It's not hard, but it can be frustrating getting the line in position.

I used the prebent lines on my CJ5 because I wanted stainless steel line and they fit perfectly. Of course I had the body off at the time

That is how I will run mine when I redo the front frame section. Some cars are like that from the factory. Mounted to the firewall.
