Sam Morris

Asked by Dec 02, 2015 at 01:35 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought an 02 suburban and the
brake hard lines were rusted out I
purchased factory lines from the
dealership and am wondering if I
need to lift the body off the frame or
anything specific to install the new
brake lines?

1 Answer


The lines run under the body. Take a look underneath but the job should not be too bad. Replace the flex lines while you are at it and bleed it out good.
