Hi all you XJ owners out there. I have a bit of a dilemma. I am puttinng a 3 inch lift kit on my 1992 Cherokee as well as replacing all the items in the brakes including discs,drums, pads, shoes as well as all springs, calipers and cylinders and stuff.. I already have the brake hoses for the lift kit but am scared to touch the brake lines becouse they look very rusty so I prefer not to touch them until I have new lines in situ. I need to know if any of you have been able to locate stainless steel brake lines for this vehicle anywhere? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Fridrik R.

I like the rubber ones, I did Wrangler on mine for my 5" lift. I think Corey XJ said Bob Surplee?? Sells them. They are available from Rubion Express too. Just soak them good with WD-40 and use a GOOD brake line wrench!!

fragnar,

I'm assuming you are looking for the "hard lines" to which your flex hoses will attach.

I'm not sure where to find them in Iceland, but here in California, you can find the stainless steel lines in various lengths at some auto parts stores like NAPA.

3/16" stainless steel brake line is very popular on boat trailers here too, so most trailer supply stores carry pre-made lengths as well as raw tubing and fittings so you can make your own. Just make sure you have quality tools to make the inverted flare. Stainless is harder to work with but worth the effort.

Thats true NAPA here sells brake lines, just bend them how you need them, if you're looking for the ones on the frame. Soak them good and you should be fine. I just did my 89 and no problems.
