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.
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.
