  1. ok the rear end is in and i put in brake lines from an 8cyl car. i also bought the new rear brake line, it has a hose with a banjo bolt and a box where the hose goes into and two fittings are on the side. the rear end has both lines from each side going to a box that also has a hose comming off of it but its cut. where does the banjo bolt go how do i put this stuff together and am i missing anything
     
  2. can i eliminate the banjo bolt and just get a t fitting and run the brake line from the front to the t then 2 each wheel cylinder
     
  3. I don't see why you couldn't eliminate it if you keep the lines secure. I believe its only function is for extra support. When I put stainless steel lines on mine, I think I left that out also.
