Brake line replacement

Post by Big_Dub »

Had a line rupture.
 
Looking at replacing all of them with a pre bent SS kit. Similar to https://www.summitracing.com/parts/cst-hr1001sb-ss/make/hummer/model/h2
 
Does anyone here have any advice/tips to offer before I get into this job?

Usually with brake lines my #1 recommendation is don't forget the nut before you do the flare lol.. However in this case you don't need to worry about it.
 
I am not sure how they are on the H2 but with other vehicles I would recommend sourcing out some line hangers/hardware just incase any are too rusted out to use or get damaged during removal.

Thanks Injunfarian.  Ill have that end of it covered as well.  And yes most annoying thing is forgetting the nut before making the flare haha
 
I have read that people are having to loosen/ remove the body bolts and raising the body off of the frame in order to gain access to the brake control module, Was wondering if anyone had experience with this issue.
