Only a dealer may have the length, you should remove the affected part and take it to a shop where they will make an exact copy for you. If it's broken take all pieces.

Have rusty, coroded brake lines. need to replace. they are leaking. do i have to get brake lines specifically for the model or is there lines that can be fabricated from like a roll of line?


A brake specialist should be able to make up new lines from a roll and fit them for you which should be cheaper than trying to order the original parts frpm Dodge which are now probably no longer available.
Another option could be to source the lines from an auto salvage / wrecking yard that specialises in Dodge vehicles. .

I am buying a 1984 El Camino and the only problem is the back break line is rusted.. I need help with purchesing a new break line. Can you help me? what is the best and the cheapest?


The best way to do it is to go to the auto parts store and buy a premade line. They come in different lengths and with the fittings on the ends. If you don't have a flaring kit, then measure the overall length from a fitting to another fitting and replace the whole thing. From the master cylinder to the rear wheel will probably cost you about $20. Hope this helps.

Replace rear passenger brake line on 1993 cutlass oldsmobile, line rusted in the middle of the car frame and blew a leak.


If you want to do this yourself, just remove the brakeline. Go to a parts store and buy the length of brake line that you need. Most brake lines are 3/8" or 1/4" so get the right size. Get the brake line fittings. You will need tubing cutter, tubing bender, and flairing tool. Just cut it to the right length, bend it to the right shape, and install it. Presto!!! New brake line! Hope this helps. Good luck.

Bad brake lines


Any good auto parts store (or go online) will have different sizes and length brake lines. They won't have the exact factory line, you will have to use several different lengths with a junction (connector) between each length. They come in lengths of one foot up to about 5 feet, and yes, you should replace all lines if one has rusted through, as the others will fail soon. Check NAPA, Auto Zone, Advanced Auto Parts, JC Whitney, etc. countrycurt0

Rear metal brake lines


To get the length, just get a roll of string, run it along the existing brake line 'til u get to the rubber line. you can cut off the line near the master cylinder, bring it to the parts store, they can tell you what size you need. You will have to use several lengths of line to reach the back. If this line has rotted thru, you should change all the others, as they are likely to fail soon. countrycurt0

My rear wheel brakeline on durango 1998 blew


Depends on your mechanic ablilites. Steel brake line is basically 0.188 inch diameter line, and the metric 6mm line dia is very closely same.
Dodge uses ISO bubble flare , and not the American standard double flare at the end of the steel tube line. This ISO bubble flare on the steel line then fits into its mate female end which is the rubber hose connector end.
So, easiest way to get rid of the ISO bubble flare and change to American double flare end is:
Some automotive stores such as Parts Plus Auto Stores carry the brass brakeline adapter which has one end being the male end that fits nicely into the rubber hose with its ISO bubble female fitting, while the other end of the brass line adapter is the female end which has the double flare so you can then insert the steel line replacement with standard double flare into this end of the adapter.
Steel line , bungy brake line or equivalent is fine, and has the brake line nuts already on it, and is flared for you too. If you want to stay with ISO bubble line fittings you can get that in bungy brake line lengths too but it is less common for some stores to carry, and that is why the conversion brake line fitting adapter mentioned is so easy a way to change from ISO bubble flare to a double flare for easier use of all steel line being standard American double flared brake line. The brake lines come in straight lengths, 2ft 4ft, and 6ft, so you can use them to fit your necessary total length by connecting them with tubing couplers which the steel tube lines brake line nut gets threaded into.
My same year Durango had its rear line blow thru last year, due to the rusting of the steel brake line. I just got done last week, doing a entire steel line replacement myself. It was a medium sized effort for sure. You should check the other lines for the entire brake system to see if you need to replace more than just that section which failed for you, as my lines showed heavy corrosion at many other locations in the brake line system.
It is easy to double flare brake line tubing , and Sears sells its craftsman brand of brake line double flare tool kit for that purpose at about 60 bucks if I recall it right.
One thing you should do when doing your own double flaring, is to use a dial caliper to measure the diameter of the flare at its widest flared end, to insure you are within the required diameter of flare to insure proper sealing when you tighten down the tube flare nuts. I recall the flare diameter is supposed to be 0.272 inches , plus or minus 0.006 inches ( so range of dial caliper measuring of that formed flare should be between 0.266 inch and 0.278 inch) to insure the right diameter of flare for good sealing.
You can also get steel galvanized tubing line in coils of 20ft and more, with a bunch of brake line nuts ( all this is standard american brake line nuts, for double flared line fitting) from Inline Tube company; www.inlinetube.com.
Check out the great tech info from FEDHILL website, www.fedhillusa.com
Good luck, I did it so you can do it and feel satisfied and safe for the family with solid and sound steel line that is much better than chancing an accident via leaving the rusted line in place.
