Replacement brake lines from abs and block to frame

Recommended Posts

First I have to say MoparMan rocks.  Has saved me hundreds if not thousands over the years!   I'm looking for suggestions on the hard lines from the ABS controller and aluminum block that run to frame mounted blocks.  It appears that Dodge went with a hybrid of standard and metric on the lines. Wanted to se what y'all have done when they rust out. I was blessed that failure occurred on the ranch and not on the road. Is there pre-bent lines available or has anyone used stainless braided for this application. Thanks for any input.

Boy... and not cheap.  Just found them on line... dont know anything about them.  

Just posting url.

 

Probably lots cheaper bending your own, but that also would be a career change for me😎  

My napa has stainless steel lines.  But what a hassle bending them.

Check to see if a wreaking yard has them.   They look to be the same for both 2wd and 4wd light and heavy duty 1998-2002 Rams if it's the brake lines from the ABS pump to the junction block.  Part #52009390AB  left line,  #52009399AB  right line.

I got a pre-bent stainless set for the front. I think it came from Fine Lines. 

Just checked E-Bay too. They have Dorman sets as well as others.

Thanks for all the help. I decided to go back with OEM lines.  It was the quickest fit for me.  Cost about $80 for both lines from dealer.

The biggest thing in the future is keeping the truck washed down. Get the mud off the underside of the truck it will keep moisture (and road salt when applicable) to the frame and part and rot things faster.

You guys aren't spot on. They rusted out an the bottom where they were sitting ties together on on a vibration pad.  Will do more to keep undercarriage clean.
