Pre-load Hose Replacement

Has anyone had to replace the hose that goes from the pre-load adjustment knob to the shock absorber? Mine is cracked and I'm wondering if it is the same size as a brake line. If so, I'm considering going with a stainless replacement. Any thoughts?

Re: Pre-load Hose Replacement

There are companies that make up hydraulic hoses. They are generally for agricultural clients but they can make anything you need. I used one once, 250 miles from home, to make a pair of tilt hoses for the outdrive on my boat. Quick, cheap, and still effective 12 years later.

Look up hydraulic hoses in the "yellow pages". There should be several companies in the PHX area.

Ok, I'll look into it. Also, is there a process to bleed the air out of the new line? I know how to do the refill on the knob.
