Corolla: Brake line relocation   2 comments

With the 8.5j starsharks and Billspeer knuckles up front the wheels hit the brake line at full lock.

On the wagon i fixed this problem by slotting the hole that the line comes through. I wanted to do a tidier job with the sedan so this is what i came up with.

Heres the stock brakeline in the wheel well…

First i cut the bracket off.

Drilled a new hole and bent the line a little to suit.

I then welded a new tab onto the bracket that i cut off.

And bolted it back in its new position.

Just need to get 2 rubber grommets to block up the old holes then its all done.
