      Comments about NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 3/16" x 25:

      This product takes the drudgery out of replacing rusty brake lines and will never rust out again.
      It flares well and forms easily without kinking
      which makes it possible to bend around frames and corners to do one piece runs which eliminates joints and extra fittings. Double flaring and bubble flaring this soft tubing is much easier than the old steel tubing.
      The Bubble flaring tool for 3/16" is the same as 4.76 mm so don't be confused by the metric equivalent. I always disliked brake line repairs but this nickel copper line makes the job much easier.

        The nickel copper brake line bent easily enough that a tubing bender was not required, but strong enough not to collapse in the radius when bending by hand.

          I have changed a lot of brake lines and this is the easiest line I have ever used. It bends easily but isn't flimsy, it flares easily and holds the flare and it won't rust. It is the best of all worlds and it is American made.

            The Nicopp brake line is easy to bend to your shape yet strong enough to provide the service you need. Standard 45 degree flaring is easy as well as bubble flaring. You will notice that the Nicopp brake line is a little softer than steel line so it requires a softer touch when flaring.
            I was less frustrated by using this brake line. It really is much easier to use!!!

                  Metal brake lines are in constant need of repairs with Michingan salt and winters. Add to winter, living on rural gravel roads, where the county brines the roadbed several times a summer, to keep dust down, and a product like this becomes a lifesaver/timesaver. Onece fixed with this product, brake lines won't have to be replaced again for a long time.

                  Advance is the only company, in my opinion offers some really good deals. I like the % deals with the online 50$ off coupon on the next interenet purchase. I've only had one issue where it said I was signed in, and was not, I lost the offer. Be sure to be signed in, make copy of the offer just in case.So far the shipping has been fast, and the products have worked for me. Thanks Advance

                  It is the only brake line that should be used in the Salt belt,The mixtture the highway depts or DOT is using is rotting the brake lines in all cars as well as anything made of mild steel or aluminium. I bends very easy,flairs perfect everytime. The price is higher than others but the quality is there.And piece of mind.

                      Hi Race Bannon! We do not have an application listing for brake line fittings. You would need to match them up by thread size and style on the vehicle and see if they would work.

And I was also wondering about the flare'n, how do I know which type of flare I am to put on it? Thank You..

                      A:

                      Hi Fiolosm, this NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 3/16" x 25 - part# CNC-325 would be an ideal brake line for your 2002 GMC Sierra 1500. You would need a brake line flaring tool. Begin by using a tubing clamp to cut the line to the length you need. Then, before you make the flare, place the brake line fitting (which will eventually connect the line to other parts of the braking system) over the tube. Place the tubing in a clamp to hold it steady. Next, take the flaring tool and insert it into the end of the tube you want flared. The flaring tool looks a little bit like a pitchfork with three prongs. Two prongs attach to the clamp holding the brake line, and the third prong (the one in the middle) actually flares the line. It's mobile; you screw it in and out of the line, which widens it, making the flare.A proper flare will be even and centered on the opening of the brake fitting. You'll want to take your time with this operation.
