Stock Brake Lines

Here's what the inside of your stock rubber brake lines looks like

I changed the brake lines to Spiegelers as part of the "Great Winter Project" and of course I was wondering what they were made of......So, Here it is!
Soft inner rubber hose, surrounded by two layers of braided fiber (fiber glass ?) encased in another layer of rubber. No wonder they're so bendy.

Re: Stock Brake Lines

Look like standard brake lines found on most vehicles. Biggest problem on the LT is that the short hoses in front bend or flex right next to the endfitting which causes them to break at that point. On my old 85 K I replaced the front brake lines last year and i am 99% sure they were the stock lines at that time.
