Re: which brake lines

ok, back to the top. I still need to figure out if i need replacement hoses that originally were made for car with disk brakes or get a set that was made for drum brakes?

Re: which brake lines

Drum brake hoses will not work, I used a front disk configuration from a stock 69 camaro setup on my 68 coupe. Those hoses should be readily available at your local auto parts store

You might check out The Right Stuff Detailing:

They make a lot of the brake lines that the Camaro restoration parts houses sell. You could probably call them and they could suggest something. I bought all my lines from them dealt with Bear, he could set you up.

Re: which brake lines

dan is right you will need disk brake hoses. you can get them at any local parts store. the application will be 67-69 front disk brake hose. all the same.

Re: which brake lines

I have a question about the brake lines, I have a 68 Camaro, but I believe the rotors and calipers are from a 72 Nova, the brake hose for a 69 Camaro with discs is different than the Nova one, and the price is half, which one is right?

Re: which brake lines

It is going to depend on which brake kit you have. I think the stock ones might screw directly into the calipers. If you have an aftermarket set that uses newer calipers that have been machined at the fitting, you may want to go with a line that uses a banjo fitting. That's how mine from Matt's (Right Stuff) are set up but I have the braided lines. You have to know if your caliper has an NPT reducing hole or just a through hole.

stock disk brake hose didn't work
I got wilwood calipers and the hole for the hose to thread into is smaller. I guess i need to call them up and find out what hose to run.
edit: little more searching and found a kit from wilwood. They have few different options, not sure which one i would need
