Default PLEASE HELP break lines

Hey guys, i have a 1990 ford ranger 4x4 and i have put a 3 inch suspension lift kit on it, i have the stock break lines still on the truck and they fit but they are stretched out of the bracket to reach, does anyone know where i can find some front break lines that will fit...I do not want any really strong lines for hardcore fourwheel driving, i just use it for on the road and maby a little off road...does any of the other ranger models have longer break lines that will fit mine? thanks for the help....

James Duff carries longer front lines...

(scroll down a little bit to see 'em)

Depending on your fitting sizes, newer(98+) trucks can run Jeep TJ stock front soft lines and they are about 3" longer than stock(on 98+ trucks). It'll be alot cheaper than going stainless...but you won't have the advantages of stainless braid. But I believe your lines are already quite a bit longer than 98+ trucks. So this may not be an option for you.

yea, them are a lot cheaper than the ones i have been quoted around town here, i was told $125.00 and not looking to spend that much, especially since the stock ones only cost $15 thats why i am looking for another model or someone that knows what i can do that does not cost to much...thanks for the help i might have to order them that you showed me if no one else can help...thanks

Best suggestion: get a brand new line from an auto parts store that's designed for your truck. Then compare it to other lines they've got there. As long as both fittings on each end are the same, you're good to go. Might be somewhat of a pain, it might not be. Might be as easy as a number changed on the part number alot like serpentine belt part numbers.
