so I was taking my front shocks out to put the bags in and had a little accident. I snipped the brake line right by the upper control arm. How much of a pain is this going to be to fix and how do I go about it?

You might be able to find an inline splice with some ferrells* and put it between the two parts of line, then just tighten it up and youre done.:dunno:

that wouldn't be very wise, you're playing with your life. pay the 25 bucks at napa and replace it.

wha???

youre talkin hard line right? or the rubber hose? If its the hose, yeah replace it, but if its hard line, you can put a connector in it and its just like theres no cut. he siad line, so i'm thinkin hard line and I dont think you can buy that at Napa. Maybe a long straight piece and then bend it, but not a pre bent line I dont think. I could me wrong though. I was wrong once i think:rolleyes: :D

if it is the hard line you need to bend a straight piece to fit, then double flange the end for the fitting. this can not be done with normal tools, need a flange kit. lata

i actually did cut the hard line. The moral behind this story is never give someone with limited mechanical skills a 4 and a half inch grinder. Don't ask how it happened, I'll never explain something that embarassing.
