Changing the rear axle on my car. Means a new flex line. Has anyone got a part number for a flex line approx 18" long with metric female on one end and metric male on the other. Axle is 86 Toyota GTS with disks.

Not really sure what you mean by a "flex line". If it's the flexible hydraulic line for the brakes, I would suggest you make your own. The best source I've found is Earl's Plumbing (now owned by Holley).

https://www.holley.com/brands/earls/

Look at the Earl' catalog and you can order most parts from Summit Racing. You'll probably need a little more info. about the metric sizes you require.

Cheers,
Roy

I guess you are looking for M10x1.0 male and female bubble; same as the caliper hoses but about twice as long.
Look for the same year 4wd pickup, rear axle, center hose.

I don't have a part #, but the napa guy let me look through the interchange catalog when I bought my brake lines. It took a while, but I found what I needed and he ordered them for me.

I should have a new stock rear axle brake line for a GTS axle. Let me see if I can find it. You can have it for free, just pay for shipping. But I'm sure that it is not 18" long?. The bulb end is designed to attach to the frame using a clip. I could not use the stock hose because I swapped brake calipers to the rear of the axle. I'll send you PM this afternoon. DaveW

Thanks Dave, got your PM. Managed to find a working part thanks to a napa guy that knows me. He let me wander through the aisles. Found a GM pickup line that fits the bill.
