just want to know who makes a front braided brake line kit for a 2003 gmc serria. because i have two inch lowering spindles in the front, and the top a arm is fliped. now that its fliped the metal brake line fitting right at the caliper is getting pinched inbetween the caliper and the a arm when i turn it to full lock.

Earls' makes a set that replaces the rubber junk lines on our trucks. Is that what you are talking about? :think:

ya, but the main thing is the metal fitting coming out of the caliper. because thats where its getting pinched. its not the rubber line thats getting pinched, its right where the rubber hose goes into the metel fitting. Obviously im going to have to get new lines, but when i get new lines i need like a quick 90 angle fitting that will come out of the caliper so the brake line will then go in a different direction to be out of the way of the a arm.

Hrm, well I never turn to full lock as it's bad for the power steering setup... FWIW.

Well, if that would help prevent/eliminate your troubles...it could be worth a shot. I'd say go for it if it is easy to do.
