Been tinkering with the 110s suspension.

the front o/s wheel is still on the ground but the brake hoses are tight so I stopped jacking.

i've got the same problem you can't buy anything longer than 2" lift kit hoses all i could find was one offs made locally with goodridge hoses but as the tomcat has disco brakes it was going to cost £100 ish for 4 hoses :blink: the only other option was to move the mounts either end but haven't done this yet. so if you come up with a solution please let me know

thanks mike :D

Can't be 100% certain but i think it was llama who does hose's for £12ish each, if not tomcat will get them for you at a similar price, run them on mine they seem perfectly good, stainless braided with plastic coating.

From the Llama site

LLAMA 4x4 specialise in stainless steel braided brake hoses. Manufactured to order, every hose we make is individually pressure tested to guarantee your safety.

Available to fit most 4x4s and cars.

We will make the hoses whatever length you specify. Any hose with zinc plated fittings up to 1 metre long is charged at just £11.75 per hose!!

Common applications such as Land Rover +2" / Suzuki +2" are normally in stock but even tailor made kits are available within 1 week, made to you own exact needs.

Hoses up to 1 metre long just £11.75 each !!

Many thanks for posting the plug on the Forum for me!!! :D

Or as posted above buy them from Tomcat with pleasure ( I supply them anyway! :lol: ). Or Gwyn Lewis, Qt Services, Innovation 4x4, Gon 2 Far, Specialist Leisure, Bullfrog 4x4, Max Traction and a whole host of others.....

LLama's one route (ask for your forum discount ;) ) but IIRC Paul Wightman will do custom hoses and if you want to go a bit further there hae been some neat installs done that use short hoses (that don't get snagged, trapped in the spring, abraided by the tyre, or otherwise damaged) by using them at the hockey stick to chassis bracket and then copper pipe along the hockey stick.

Or just go all the way from the one bracket up the radius arm and back down the chassis to the original bracket in braid - costs less than £20 per hose I suppose and means that it remains a bolt on fit with no modifications to the car. This means that if all goes pear shaped you could put a std one back on just to get you home.. QT Services have them like this for their 3 link kit....

Yes, thats the idea David, leaves a lot less slack to flap about and cause bother.

Anyone got any pics?
