Rear brake hose rubbing on fuel line.

Just under my car today and noticed the left rear brake hose has been rubbing on one of the fuel lines above it. The fuel line being metal and brake hose being rubber, you can guess which one is losing, thus the brake hose has a nice flat spot worn into it. How common is this? My car aint even that low, so how many other people have seen this on their 'dumped' EA-EDs?

Re: Rear brake hose rubbing on fuel line.

I just checked mine and it isn't touching at all - i am running lows in the back. If i was you i would replace it asap and see if you couldnt move it out of the way.

Re: Rear brake hose rubbing on fuel line.

i have noticed the exact same thing on my car (it has kings superlows) but i think it has been doing it even before i lowered it, i seem to recall noticing the flat spot when i put it on a hoist for the first time after i bought it.

i have tried to rotate the brake line mount (the metal block on the diff which has the rubber hose going into it that changes to metal to go along the diff) it is free to rotate (you just have to gently bend the brake lines as you turn it) and that has sort of stopped it.

what im trying to say is you should turn the mounting block to get the hose to bend in a different direction as the diff goes up and down over bumps, more towards the middle instead of towards the fuel line.

how is the turbo setup going?
