I need six hoses (for a mopar non b-body) and find prices from all over the place! I am sure all are required to meet DOT standards but is a 10 dollar hose as good as a 40 dollar hose??? I find a lot of foreign manufacturers. Are any made in the US anymore? ....Thanks, Ed

I bought my steel brake lines from Online Tune and my flexible lines from Doctor Diff because they came as part of the brake kit.

I recently replaced front brake hoses on my 67 Coronet. I shopped RockAuto, and paid more for the Raybestos name brand than their Chinese "Sunsong" brand hoses. Well, when I got my new hoses in the pretty Raybestos boxes, the damn rubber hoses had Sunsong printed on them.....Same hoses, just had a paper tag with the Raybestos part number on them.

If they came from a company called "Safebrake" you got hosed by a little Asian posing as an Australian who has an office in Melbourne, Australia, and lives in the Philippines. He is a crook and a fricken liar. More importantly, he only makes brake hoses with Metric fittings.

Bogus company and a criminal IMHO....and the people who run our local national auction site won't do a thing about his deception ... must be a ***** (can't say it here) :mob:

You can get hydraulic hoses made by just about any mobile hose maker that services the trucking industry. They have a truck load of fittings and hose, and pop them out right on site.
