RE: 2001 Suburban - Brake lines leaking

Thanks everyone....typical great info from this forum. Trying to find a pre-bent copper-type line kit. May need to custom fit the copper-type (understand it's easy to work with) or go with a stainless kit. Thanks for the heads-up regarding the need to remove the gas tank. Great comments - after the first blow out should have replaced all the lines. Like I said..never had this problem before. Like one of the posts I just replaced all the brakes/rotors and inspected all the lines. It was driven ~50 miles when the line going over the rear differential blew. Obviously a potentially dangerous problem. Having the trailer brakes helped me limp home both times; my emergency brake was useless and even though still had fluid in one side of the master cylinder the pedal went to the floor.

2001 Suburban - Brake lines leaking

Having trouble with brake lines blowing on my 2001 Suburban. Happened twice; both times while towing my travel trailer. The most recent was last Sunday with the trailer hooked up for a trip to Fort Clinch, beach site #5. Fortunately happened on the road I live on and I was able to turn around. First vehicle I've had with this problem; apparently this is common in Northern States. Anyone with experience and have a recommendation for a brake line kit? Having a hard time finding one for a Suburban.
