1998 GMC Sierra (C1500) 5.0L 305 V8-right rear brake line

The brake line that runs the length of the right rear frame rail is leaking...two questions 1) was this a recall in the 1998 GMC's? 2) can this be replaced without removing the truck bed?

    Thanks...just for clarification...I should follow the line that is hidden from view in the frame rail to it's origin...then follow it out to where it connects to the hoses that are visible...simply disconnect both ends and make new connections...leave the old one in the rail...and just hang the new one on the visible side of the rail.

I believe your brake line going to the back has rusted out so that is were your brake fluid is going .Have your line replaced and the truck power bleed .This is dangerous i would have it towed to a shop .

Need to replace brake line from rear axle forward on a 1996 gmc sierra 1500 pu xcab. i need a diagram.


Chanses are it broke behind the gas tank wear it runs along the frame rail. You don't need a diagram to fix that, just unhook it at both ends and break it off or cut it off buy the tank and take the pieces with you to a auto parts store and they will match it up with new line, just take a tape measure and measure from the rear axel to the front block or perportioning valve, and don't worry about the piece behind the tank, just run the new line alongside the old one behind the tank unless you want to pull the tank out.

Right rear wheel locking up


okay you had brake work done!!! "THINKING" that was the problem originally right rear wheel locking up! okay,,, so doing brakes has not solved your problem! I would maybe look into rear end bearing??? do you have any load road noise from rear and do you have rear end fluid in differential? question to you was the baking plate ""WET"" looked damp? or moister get at it!??? seal might have leaked all fluid out??? all the above would be good place to start! good luck I hope this info helps you out.Happy new year.

99 GMC Sierra Fluid Leak Immediately after Getting Oil Change


as an owner of three gmc sierras, i can attest that the brake lines that run along the frame rail under the master cylinder inherently rust away and break. I wouldnt neccesarily think it was tampered with. but do check the condition of all of the lines including the fuel lines for excessive rust.
