    When I started the 1992 Jeep up this fall I noticed the power steering line was spitting out fluid (rotted through).

    During the first test drive of the season after replacing line (today) the brake pedal went to the floor on the second stop! There is a rusted out pinhole in the front drivers side brake line! :realmad:

    Tomorrow I will replace all the lines, wow, good thing this happened now, and not in the middle of a storm. :nono:

    Yep, better now

    Yep, better now then when Bimbo decides to make you panic stop behind her.
    Look at your Transmission lines too.
    I replaced all brake and tranny lines this summer, $50 in parts is cheap, compared to what could happen!
    I just did an oil change and grease on the truck and the lines are already rusted when 3 months old!
