i need help. I noticed this on thursday when I put new shocks on the back. The rear brake lines have been rubbing up against the leaf springs and have been chewing away at the brake line. I think i caught it before it completely went through the cable. Any thing I can do as a quick fix for now to stop them from rubbing up against the leaf spring?
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that is the emergency brake cable, not the actual brake line. If that is the case, put a cover over the line. The placement of that line is a really bad design.
its like that on both sides...if it is the emergency cable then im not to worried because i dont even use...if its the actual brake line im kind of scared..even if i put a sleeve over it it will continue to wear away at it...i need a way to temperarily fix it for at least a month so i can save up the money to have it fixed

Like stated before, those are the emergency brake cables. I had to zip tie my cables so they wouldn't rub as well. If the casing isn't broken through, you should be fine. If they are, I would replace them before water gets in and causes the cables to sieze.
