This is what I used:
Amazon.com: JEGS Performance Products 635300 DOT Brake Hose Kit: Automotive Amazon.com: JEGS Performance Products 635300 DOT Brake Hose Kit: Automotive


And I ran new hard lines from the distribution block on top of the axle using these:
Amazon.com: AGS PA320 Steel Brake Line Kit: Automotive Amazon.com: AGS PA320 Steel Brake Line Kit: Automotive


Keep in mind its a little longer than necessary on both sides, especially the passenger, but you can just move around the flexible stainless steel lines so it's ok.

If anyone needs caliper mounting bolts, I have some left over from when I did this. Brand new grade 10.9 bolts. The ones that mount the caliper to the bracket. I've got six, so thats four to use and two extra.

i used the Raybestos BH36847 lines from a 80's monte carlo on mine for two reasons. One im poor and two i would like to be able to get replacement parts at autozone if needed.

The 10mm banjo end and 3/8"-24 female end.

Currie bracket question

Great thread. I currently have the 28 spline axle, but plan on upgrading to an Explorer axle ('95 - 01'). I have several reasons for doing this but the main reason is strength. I have a truck camper and plan on a lift with quite a bit larger tires (35" or 37"). So I will need all the braking force possible for safe driving.

In the initial write up, close to the end, there was a link for a currie bracket for the 31 spline axles. Will this work with all the other parts in the write up for an Explorer axle? And Currie says the bracket is for a 'late model Torino big bearing housing'. What does this mean exactly?

I'm just trying to make sure the bracket will work.

95-01 Explorer axles already have disc brakes.

Yes, I'm fully aware of that. That's why I'm swapping an Explorer axle into my truck. My truck currently has 10" drums and the Explorer has 10" disks. I'd like to install LARGER disk brakes though for more stopping power. I'm also trying to figure out how to put larger disks on the tront of my truck as well.

I live in a very mountainous region and want the extra security of stopping power and heat dissipation to relieve the overheating and 'brake fade' with larger tires and camper weight.

E brake

Can we get a better picture of the e brake setup . Close up so we can actually see the line getting to caliper and hooked up. Thanks

the 09 - 10 mazda b4000 pickups came with the factory front 12 inch brakes i think

i had to take a tape measure to be sure , napa lists 2 different sizes of front rotors

find a wrecked b4000 of those 2 years and salvage the front knuckles and calipers
