New rearend housing, new Wilwood brakes with parking brake, question on running brake lines and parking brake lines...
I've run my front brake lines, now I'm running the back. I've been using 3/16" nicop with inverted flares so far. I'm assuming I need to run hard line to the back. Then a flex line for differential travel to the axle housing. There needs to be a T fitting that's mounted to the housing and then hard lines out to the calipers? At least that's what I recall on the old drums...
However, I'd like to have flex lines at the end by the rear calipers so I can change out brake pads and pull the axles easily. Is it uncommon to run flex line all the way down the axles tube from the T? Or is that too much flex line, just curious... Thought it may eliminate a couple joints.
Next, I need parking brake lines from my brakes to my main parking brake cable mount on the rear frame. Wilwood sales a universal for hand brake kit with like a 10' line, so that's out.
Pics below for reference....
Don't make fun of the baby brakes, I needed to be able to fit 15" wheels for the drag strip.
Here's the location I need the parking brake to run too...
