8.8 no ABS brake lines

I am finally upgrading my rear to a 8.8. I do not have ABS but the rear end I got did. For those of you who do not know what the difference is........... The brake line splits at the center of the drive shaft instead of connecting on the corners.

The dealership said I have to make the brake lines. Has any one done this and any pics.? I could not find any 99-04 8.8 pics and my presumption is they will look like the 94-98 but I am not 100% sure. The brake lines do not look as easy to make as the v6 ones.


new engine,1.7 rocker arms,Pipes exhaust, shorty cats , shorty headers,under drive and overdrive pulleys,4.2 upper plenum, throttle body spacer, cold air intake, stage one clutch, shorty shifter, and tune. 8.8 in storage

You can't just use your old stuff as a template and make new lines? That's what I did when the brakes on my expy took a ****. The whole damn thing was rotting in various places from the front all the way back and across the IRS. I ripped the whole thing out, laid it out in the driveway and started bending and flaring.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
