Default New 9"=New Brake lines

Im in the process of putting my 9" in my car and was wondering if anyone used their stock brake lines. Or did you go to the parts store and buy some and bend them to fit. How did you attach them to your rear?

I did, just used some heavy duty zip ties with some hose around them to mount them. Doesn't look bad at all and you can't see it when its on the ground anyway.

Thanks, I was probably going to try it before I bought new lines. Good idea on the hose.

We reuse the factory lines all the time with Moser 12 bolt and nine inch rears. Bob

I made all new brake lines, cost less than $10.00 and they look factory without any funky bends or re-bends.

If you're handy with a tubing bender, that is a good way to go. Bob

Bending the tubing is cake, its making the damn double flares that drives me crazy. Its a fifty fifty shot that it will come out right.

Yeah you can. But its doubtful you can buy an already flared line that is the exact length you want. I had to cut down a 30" and a 40" line to get the correct lengths and make it look factory and not ghetto.
