PostSubject: check those brake lines   Sat 09 Aug 2008, 10:49 am

Went to Discount Tires today to have my tires rotated & balanced. While the tires were being balanced, I took the opportunity to check things out around the wheel well areas. I noticed that my passenger side rear shock had signs of something rubbing against it. The area was on the side facing the tire, so it was not something that would have been seen with the tires on. With a little investigating, I realized the brake line was the culprit. The brake line was not in constant contact, so apparently it is just something that rubs when the rear wheel moved upwards. When I got home I bent the bracket some to move the line a bit further from the shock. I also wrapped that area of the brake line with some duct tape so that if it does do any more rubbing, it will have to rub thru the duct tape before damaging the line itself.

When I finished with mine, I check Shannon's. And sure enough, the exact same thing was happening with her's. So I made the same adjustment to the bracket and wrapped the line with duct tape for added insurance.

We both have 2.5" lifts. Her's uses the brake line relocation bracket that came with her TF lift. Mine has a homemade bracket because I bought the BB used and it did not include a relocation bracket.
