Ford Bronco Brake Hoses

 

 

 

When checking or replacing your brake hoses make sure you are checking and replacing  ALL your brake hoses.  It is easy to overlook some brake hoses if you aren’t familiar with the vehicle, for instance:  Below picture is of a brake hose that goes from the master cylinder to the proportioning valve on an 87 Ford Bronco. If this hose fails you could lose both back brakes OR you could have back brakes that won’t release.  With this hose even a slight problem releasing fluid pressure is going to cause your back brakes to wear out much sooner, reduce your gas mileage and reduce power to your rear drive wheels.

 

 

Stop these problems before they happen by replacing those old hoses with one of our new, high quality brake hoses like the one  pictured below.   Keep your Bronco going when it NEEDS to go and stopping when it NEEDS to stop!

 

 

 

Old vs New

Old Brake Hose

Looking at the outside of the old brake hose above it is pretty easy to see that it should be replaced.  Another thing to consider is the age of your brake hose.  A brake hose may even look fine on the outside, but sometimes the inside wall of a brake hose can collapse and keep the brake fluid pressure from releasing, causing a brake to stay engaged.

Our High Quality New Brake Hose

When one brake hose is bad and needs to be replaced,  it is really a good idea to replace all of your brake hoses.

Ford Explorer Brake Hose Repair

 

This brake hose came in on a Ford Explorer with a bad break in it that needed to be replaced.  Upon inspection the other hoses in the set were OK and our customer decided to save them and only replace the bad brake hose.  We were able to remove and replace the bad hose with a brand new rubber one.

Brake Hose Replacement

1960’s Chevrolet


This brake hose fits Chevrolet Corvair and Chevy II. The original was so badly rotten that it broke when removing it. We built a brand new replacement on site complete with new fittings.
Rubber lines should be replaced every 7 years to maintain maximum braking pressure in the event of a sudden stop.

Switch to Braided Stainless

Braided Stainless Brake HoseIn recent history, stainless brake lines have become one of the most popular stand-alone upgrades that one can purchase for their vehicle. That many people cannot be wrong can they? There are several reasons it is a benefit to invest in stainless brake lines.

One of the biggest benefits is that when compared to the old rubber lines, stainless brake lines offer 66% less expansion. What this comes down to is that your newly purchased stainless brake lines will make your problems due to heat and other factors quickly fade, and it also reduces pedal travel.

When you reduce pedal travel thanks to these stainless brake lines, you are going to notice an increase in braking power, be able to brake faster and it even feels better when you hit those brakes.
On average, a rubber hose lasts for approximately 6 years, if you do not remember to change them before they can become a safety hazard. With stainless brake lines, you do not have to worry about changing your brake lines.

Many people are worried about the price; after all, shouldn’t stainless brake lines with all those benefits be much more expensive? The truth of the matter is that when you are paying for them, your bank account is barely going to know the difference, but your car sure is.

If you are interested in making the switch to stainless brake lines E. L. Johnston Auto Parts has you covered. For the best quality and best service be sure to drive on over to E. L. Johnston Auto Parts and find out why they are considered at the top of the business.
