    Stripped my flare but when trying to replace my calipers. Need new brake lines. Hard brake lines already molded are proving hard to come across. Is it okay to replace hard brake lines with the stainless street options? If so how can I find the right size hose I need? 2006 4wd

    You just go to your local dealer and say, "gimme the hard lines". Then go back the next day and pick them up. You're not the 1st person to FUBAR the hard line between the hose and the caliper.

    Yeah, that’s what I’m afraid I’ll have to do. The guy helping me out told me to avoid having to buy and bend our own. So I’ve noticed stainless steel brake lines are more available all over. Can hard lines be switched out with stainless steel or even rubber if wanted? I’m leaning more towards stainless steel lines.
