used where a flexing action is required. For example, a
brake hose is used between the frame and the
front-wheel cylinders or disc brake calipers. This
design allows the wheels to move up and down, as well
as side to side without damaging the brake line. Figure
7-9 shows the details of how brake lines and brake
hoses fit together.
A junction block is used where a single brake line
must feed two wheel cylindersorcalipers. It is a simply
a hollow fittingwith one inlet and two or more outlets.
Mounting brackets and clips are used to secure
brake lines and hoses to the unibody or frame of the
vehicle. The mounting brackets help hold the
assemblies secure and reduce the vibration which
causes metal fatigue, thereby preventing line
