Last night while working late at a job site i was adjusting the angle of my truck to shine my head lights on our work area. steped on the peddle and "pop" the line burst. i wondering how hard the job. it's burst in the articulating rubber line. can i just replace the rubber tube? or does the whole line have to be replace back to the master cylinder? :icon_confused:

i havn't had a chance to look at it yet because it was dark out when it happened and it at the job site 50 miles away..

You should, key word SHOULD, only need the rubber line, the two crush washers (which usually come with a new line) and some fluid. I would highly recommend getting some good spray lube, and a good line wrench because odds are very good that the line fitting on the back side of the spring bucket is good and frozen.
