Im trying to extend my brake lines for my 97 with 3 inch lift. I bought the oem tundra/t100 lines. Eveything went smoothly other than the front passenger frame to axle part #90947-a2016. It just wont thread. The head of the fittings is too big for the mounting brackets too. I noticed too that all other 6 hoses i bought were made in japan. This specific one that did not fit was made in usa of usa and imported parts. Makes me think that fittings and hose were china and was just crimped here. Anyhow, any one had this problem? Any suggestions?

I actually removed the axle hard line to see if i was just not aligning it right but it still wont thread. Maybe i got a defective part. Ill see if I can get it exchanged. Thanks.

Check to see if the ends of the hard lines are over flared. This happened to me on 3 out of 4 lines. I had to file the flares slightly down in order to thread them into the lines.

This. The end of the line has expanded. I ran into the same thing, just file it down and make sure you clean out all the metal shavings before reassembly.

This might be the case. You guys are referring to the end that looks like a trumphet right?
