How to flush old brake fluid, purge air from brake lines, because we change a busted brake hose caused by the tire. If you are running larger tires on your Truck, SUV, Jeep, or whatever your drive there is more stress on the brakes. Well, all our cars are lifted and stopping is very important to us!

We are doing this because when I installed the 4-inch lift on this jeep, I didn’t make sure the brake hose cleared the tire when turning. So in this video, we go over how to replace the brake hose, that connects the brake slave cylinder to the brake line. Then we purge all the brake fluid out of the master cylinder and all the brake lines. Finally, we purge the air out of the brake lines making sure our jeep will stop without having a mushy brake pedal.
So glad that we looked at the brakes and put our big bumper on this jeep, not just a week later it was involved in an accident when going 50 MPH. If our son’s brakes had been soft or the brake line had failed, this wreck could have been so much worse. Just goes to show it is never too early to check that your ride’s brakes are working as well as possible.
