Was just wondering if anyone knows of a company that stocks or will be able to easily supply longer brake lines for an 80 series. I live in Brisbane and would like to get some before the weekend. If some one does know or have fitted them in the past what price would I expect to pay for one on the front and one on the back?

Cheers'

Take your old ones to Pirtek?

Try some of the serious 4wd shops, chances are they would have to order them in.

maybe www.bigballsoffroad.com ask Liam

could always cut a hole in the floorpan and use your feet to brake...lol. You must have a hell of a setup to get cutom brake lines.

I only have a 3inch lift but noticed when I was putting the 30mm spring packers in that at full articulation the brake line was at full extension. The shockies were off at this stage so perhaps it wont go that far with the front ones on. I am just worried as I am going to Landcruiser park this weekend and the last thing I want is to loose brakse before having to drive home.

Do you guys thing I should bother?

Charlie, Personally yes I think you should, it may not break at LCMP, but what happens on that big hill on the way home?? Last thing you want is NO brakes.

Your call.

Most times they are not needed. I have a 6 inch set of Dobsons under mine and i use std lines with spacers off the chassis(rear)and diff (front)
Easier and less expensive.

They are home made from two pieces of metal 19mm wide,4mm thick, with 8mm holes in each end. If you have a 3 inch lift, then it was because the shocks were off that it pulled tight. Where you have to space the lines is when you put longer shox than usual in the cruiser.
Enjoy your 4wding

I have extended lines also, only need two for the 80 series (front & rear)

You should be able to have them made to order but it pays to shop around as some charge a fortune like Checkpoint.

If you want one ready made try Wizard Performance in Brisbane - Brent- 0418886036.

The sell the 6" lift kits that come with extended lines so they should be able to help.
