Are you setting the pinion angle when the truck is at ride height?

No I have the front sitting at 6 inches and the back about 15 inches? I think this is my problem. When I jacked it back up the pinion went back to 0* lol I wish I didnt have to work so hard to learn something !!

Post Re: My truck
Pinion angle is relative to frame angle. If it's on stands under the axle and control arms and the frame angle is what you would have if it were on the ground then the pinion angle would be correct. If it's on stands and the distance between the frame and axle is not what you would have if it were sitting on the ground, then the pinion angle changes when you let it down (or jack it up) because of the geometry of the rear suspension.

Napa sells the Brass OEM double female connector your needing for the
run from the front to the back. The front uses a Brass female tee, and
the rear at the axle has a Brass female tee built into the axle hose. :wink:

Post Re: My truck
there is no reason to have 2 lines run to the back. Unless you have some late model ABS or traction controll unit going in there. There are plenty of fittings available to do what you are trying to accomplish. I usually just buy a roll of tube and flare them myself to fit what I need.

I couldn't double flare to save my life. the two lines I speak of are going to be hooked together. to reach the rear . to the rubber line

I understand that, been trying to find a custom
"High Pressiure" hose for the 72 over 6 months

I'm pretty sure you can buy a roll of the metal brake line at advance and they have all kinds of brake fittings to if you wanted to tie two together. I'm pretty good at double flaring if you need a hand with it.
