Russell and other(s) make just about any/every adapter someone would need to roll their own SS brake lines.
Banjo -> AN, AN to inverted flare, etc. etc.

Never more than glanced at the back of the caddy,
I ASSume you are saying custom due the the 4 wheel ABS?
Could you not use a pair of Impala frame to diff housing hoses with a 3/8 Inverted flare plug in the unused port on each ?

Until then: can anyone hazard a guess of the ends of the stock rear hose. It's 12.5", and if I get end types I might get lucky with as-like GM application in s.s.. Or at least the length and one end and do an adapter to the other end. Gerry, from this pic I see risk that the axle hardline fitting is oriented 90* off Impala ss v. FW. And at least one pic of an SS hose looks like a banjo bolt style on one end.

I stand corrected, for some reason i had it in my mind the caddy had a pair of hoses that looked like the frame to axle of a impala but with one port missing.

If this is to be believed ,

my guess would be you would need

10-1.0 female bubble at frame and 12- 1.0 .
Total guess with no info to base that on though.
( not like that stops anyone giving advice)


This sort of thing

Gerry here I am searching everywhere and you find specs on the freakin' AZ site. :grrrrr: Seriously, thanks for working up the makeup fittings. I'm taking the hose specs to a couple companies doing s.s. kits and see if those ends are in fact 'standard' for one of their other applications.




Details are rather sparse but here's the general layout for the Cady:

When I originally created the FW rear disc kit (96 Black being the first recipient), it took me awhile to figure out what the deal was. As mentioned, for 4-channel ABS, there are 2 hoses that run between axle and frame. In reality they are both the same hose, BUT they are reversed/flipped from each other--one hose is 10mm at the axle, and the other is 12mm at the axle. This was done to prevent the lines from being crossed in assembly, to ensure that ABS activation is always to the correct wheel.

For clarity, view this post - photos showing line fittings for FW

If you want these hoses in braided stainless, just talk to Tobin at KORE3--he works with Crown Performance, and they'll produce anything you need, but it's easier through KORE3. I don't recall if the ends are ISO bubble or inverted flare.
