rear brakes

Centerline I take it you're talking about the first pic. Basically no reason other than it was easier to connect that way and it allowed plenty of slack so the line wouldn't reach its limit if the rear suspension was fully extended.

quick question

New to running brake lines. Is there a reason the 3 way connection is sticking up, and not laid down to the back or front? Maybe stupid question, but I am absolutly brand new to the brake lines. Thanks! BTW you're awesome, I was just gonna ask this question when you answered with pictures! Thanks!

Centerline This is the one I did on my '53 pickup. It isn't a 9" (GM 10 bolt) but has typical brake lines. I just ran hard lines to a spot on the frame near the line connection on the axle and then ran an AN 3 braided stainless steel line down to the axle. Nothing to it.

This is the 9" that's in my deuce. I ran hard lines to each side and then AN 3 stainless braided lines to each brake separately. Two variations on a theme.

I try to keep the frame connection close to the axle but far enough away so that when the axle articulates the flex line won't move too much or interfere with anything that moves.
