Finish the Brake Lines

Steps 2, 3, and 4 were more or less vague about detailing what to do with the brake lines. That’s because Fabtech did one helluva lousy, crappy job explaining what to do with them! Thanks, Fabtech!

Ultimately, it will be up to you and your creativity to route and position the brake and ABS lines so they’re safe from sustaining damage while driving.

48aBasically what I did was locate every tiny factory bracket and clamp that could be unbolted from the rear axle. These were all the little pieces that held the brake and ABS lines to the axle. You may have already removed some of these. There may be some others still bolted in place. They were all sorts of different shapes and sizes. Some were long curvy brackets. Others were small clamps like the one in the photo.

48bI’m unable to explain step-by-step how to do this because the pieces you have may differ from mine. What you need to do is use these clamps and brackets collectively to reposition the brake lines. Again, you’ll need to think creatively to do this. I’ll include a full-size image of what mine looked like in the end. Just carefully look over the picture and follow the ABS lines and the brake lines from side to side. You’ll be able to see where I attached everything and how. Like I said, I can’t explain how to do this. Just be creative and thorough and think about the kind of driving you’ll be doing and if there’s any risk of snagging the brake lines on anything.
