how about the w-body rear hoses? they come off the body and go straight to the caliper.

They are even shorter, they are 9.875" and per autozone, the fittings are wrong. 10mm banjo on one side but 3/8-24 female on body side.

Just got off the phone with 1 of 3 companies I plan to check.

21" hose would be roughly $46 each side. This for new, tested, DOT approved braided lines. Rubber lines would be roughly $38.

I priced doing a line with 2 fittings.
Looked at doing both a banjo fitting and a regular threaded adapter. Both ways, it totals about $70 for both lines. I can get them to close to $60 if 5 or more people are interested.

Would include body line to -3an adapter, custom 21" line with 45* fitting on one end and either a banjo fitting or the threaded adapter.


I just priced the setup on jegs and it would be close to $50 per side.

I'm going this route as I will only have to actually change 1 fitting from my current setup.

If anyone is interested in having the lines this way, let me know and I will see about setting up a group buy. I will do them in batches of 5, I will have the lines about a week after payment as the actual lines is custom with the 45* fitting and takes a couple days to get from earls.

This replaces the saturn rubber hose, the jbody hardline that attaches to the wheel cylinder and the jbody rubber line that attaches to the body near the trailing arm.

They said they will sell the rears for $29.95 shipped in the US. For Canada, I don't know.

I guess i didn't realize you were making a 3 piece. is the 3 piece like hooking up a saturn SS line with a adapter to a jbody ss line?

Personally interested in 1 simple piece. Was the $60 for both a price on the 1 or 3 piece? Is it all catalog stuff? think to make your life a little easier then trying to do the GP is to just provide part numbers etc?

To do a 1 piece ss hose with a banjo fitting one end and the female IF on the other, would be right around $100 for the pair.

To do a 3 piece hose, which is a 10mm banjo x -3an fitting(piece 1), custom 21" long -3an hose with 1 end having a 45* angle (piece 2), and a female IF x -3an fitting (piece 3), they would be $75 for the pair.

Here is a parts list for the 3 piece hose from Jegs. Its all Russell brand where I have access to and would provide XRP fittings.

Female IF Adapter $16.99/pair

Russell Straight Hose $21.99/Each

Jegs brand Banjo fitting, bolt and washers $11.99/side

To order the parts from Jegs, and not get the custom 45* hose would cost you $84.95 plus their S&H


Hope this clears everything up!

I'm trying to figure out a steel braided brake line set for the rear of my 2004. Alittle confused over the posts here however is there a solution yet?

Go 2 posts up where I list all 3 pieces needed. It can be done without the 45* end on the hose, just use a 23" long straight hose.

I hope n/a2.4 will post his up when he gets them installed.

One of these days ill have the time to actually install mine.

I did notice your post however just not 100% sure how to follow what you said. Would I have to actually hand make the hose? Like get the braided hose cut to the length I want then get them fittings compressed on or something? Or do buy a certainly part # or length line and use the fittings with that braided hose piece?

Also it seems you just posted the 3 fittings/links. What about the rest of the items like the braided hose part? Any reasonable place to buy that from?

Sorry I just don't understand the braided hose stuff as much as others do. Just so used to buying a kit that bolts right on lol.

That's what the above 3 pieces look like once put together. $80.00 shipped to the US or $85.00 to Canada.

So with that above line you posted that even replaces that part of the steel line that used to go into the back of the drum correct?

I answered my own question I asked above.

Could we possibly get a group buy going on this to drop the price down any?

I would have to order 10+ sets to get the price lower, and even then I doubt it would be more than $5 a set cheaper.

The price is already nearly $15 cheaper than buying from jegs.

I will talk to the guy I get the parts from and see what he can work me.

Michael pm me if interested and ill give you some other information.

that looks good, thats what i was trying to get through some of our distributors.



Re: Saturn rear disc swap brake lines

At least it looks like there is now a good option for the rear setup. However is there something we can do about the front? I hate to buy a complete J-body steel hose kit and I wouldn't even need the rears from that kit anymore.

Be cool to get this custom rear steel hoses plus the 2 front J-body ones to buy like in a complete kit.

Then I gotta figure out a method for mounting the Saturn E-brake bracket correctly...

Or at least a place to buy just the fronts.
