    I read in Cruiser Facts about the Earl's lines from Barnett Performance. Looked perfect, awesome price ($15.00 for 22 in.) , good reputation on Earl's. I call them up, card in hand, ready to make my baby stop again, and wouldn't you know it, out of stock.

    Does anyone else know of a good dealer of Earl's SS Brakelines?

    I also have a question about the stock disc brake setup on a 78 FJ40. Can I bypass the small hardine to the caliper by using a SS Flex line from the long hard line that runs across the axle. I'm thinking, Long Flex line from frame, going to the "T" on on top of the diff housing, hard line on both side's to the end of the housing, and then SS flex line to the calipers. If I do this how long will the Flex line need to be? And it will need to be female on the hardline end and male on the caliper end? Same Metric 10.1 mm fitting correct?

    HELP!!!!!

    By the way, my 3 month, $1500.00, SOA is almost done. And all I wanted was some cheap, quick lift :-X
