    Find a shop that does nylon fuel lines. Will save you a fortune. And you'll never have to do them again.

    If its a diesel the shop I work at replaces the llines with rubber fuel line . You can buy the ends from napa if the originals are rotted out . It usually takes 2 hours ,because you have to lower the fuel tank .

    i did a set of gas lines on a 6.0 1 time. :angry:

    should have picked the cab/front clip up off.

    i wound up cuttin them in 2 and flare unions in them to install in 2 peices.

    the nylon aftermarket stuff is the trick now adays. payup

    Nylon is the way to go these days. Super easy to work with, not excessively expensive and will never corrode again. Most any decent repair shop should have the very little skills needed to use it and know where to source the needed parts, if they don't have them on hand already as it's pretty much become an industry standard practice in the last few years simply due to the "fast fix" and "one size fits all" and low cost of it which are advantageous to both the customer and the shop.

    I just did an '02 GM gasser the other day replacing both the supply and return lines from the tank all the way to the front for $100 in line and fittings and 2.5 hours in labor. Yours could come in for less since your '04 won't have a return line. Can't do an equal job for any less than that using anything else.

    I didn't think anybody still used steel fuel lines. I guess I was mistaken.
