Remember, I don't have a fancy lift to work under, doing this shit on my back.

I know man, appreciate that. I got it home and all the old lines out in about an hour and a half. New lines will be here tomorrow, putting them in will probably kick my ass.

Never thought about rusty brake lines failing. We don't have that problem in Texas lol. Glad you didn't wreck. No brakes suck. Wife lost an idler pully last week and she almost went off a cliff without power steering and no brakes.

They definitely fail, lol. There were at least five or six other spots on various lines that were very close to letting go.

Got my lines here, about to jump in and get after it.

I'm in the process now. Reman calipers on all four corners, lol. The bleeders were big balls of rust and broke off immediately. After messing with the broken parts for a little while I said to hell with it and picked up remans.

Done and test drove. No leaks, abs works, pedal is firmer than it was before.

Doing the lines wasn't that bad actually. They are flexible enough to move them around without worrying about them breaking.

Bleeding wasn't bad either. I actually started up front since the mc had emptied and I had no fluid anywhere. Regular pumping with the truck off did nothing. With the truck running it moved some fluid and then pumping with the truck off worked. Moved to the rear, bled both sides, then did the front again. All gravy.

Thanks for the link. Don't suppose you know of where to get a hose kit too? I ordered the lines from 1AAuto, but they don't show any brake hoses. Rock Auto has most of the hoses, but they are ~$12 - $15 each. Does anyone make a "kit" for when you end up redoing your brake lines? Summit lists a Russell "kit", but it is ~$100 .... almost the price of buying the individual ones off of Rock Auto.

Well, looked at the Russell website and they list the #672440 kit as the one for 2001 - 2006 Silverado HD's. The picture that I saw on Jegs/Summit shows 5 hoses and that's what is quoted on the Russell website. The picture though doesn't show if they come with new banjo bolts or washers. Anyone know if you it comes with new washers or not? I'd rather put new ones in if I am swapping.

No new banjo bolts with the kit, it comes with new washers but they are aluminum and will corrode. i just bought new copper ones off rock auto
