Factory Ford Ranger Rear Hard Brake Lines

Does anybody have an extra set of rear hard brake lines for a Ford Ranger?

Thanks,
Zach

You know you can get lengths of hard brake lines already flared with fittings from autoparts stores. Just bend to fit. Probably the easiest and cheapest solution.

I think 93+ 7.5 and 8.8s are all the same. The newer the better though.

NAPA, Advance, etc.....twice that's the route I took, just measure your length, less than 20 bucks for the bending tool, and no flaring.....I hate flaring! 3 foot 3/16 line at NAPA was about 8 bucks.

Or, consider Stainless Brake Lines and get a set pre-bent from them.
IF I ever need to replace mine it will be S/S.

Also, remember to “Double Flare” the ends of Brake Lines… ALWAYS !

You guys are a bunch of girly men!!!

Flaring is easy, you just have to know what you're doing. A little bit of oil or brake fluid helps lube the tubing to make a nice flare.

Just don’t forget to double flare !

Added: Bending is easy , just take your time and use the correct sized tool some have replaceable heads.
Take the old one out and use it as a patten.

3 foot line is about 4 inches long, just make your bends wider than the stock piece and you will be fine. At least on the drivers side.

Using brake fluid is recommended to lube the flare. It makes the job much easier to get a good flare. And it is not hard to learn. You can practice on some spare brake line.
