Most likely yes if yours are the 15" ones. Napa sells oem style 18" front brake hoses for a 94 f350 iirc. That is what I installed on mine.

I saw my stock F250 lifted by the frame and wheels removed while the wheels were balanced and was shocked at how tight the stock brake lines were. I quickly installed a 3 line set made by Crown but I'm sure there are plenty of options.

I do plan on a mild lift so this needed to happen anyway. But after seeing how tight the stock length lines were, I'd change to a longer length if a replacement was needed.

I bought them through "CT Performance", I believe a regular here. I just told him my plans and he took care of the number crunching.

thanks for the replies guys. I see on rough country they got a set of front lines for 40 bucks. But they're only coming up with ones for 150s and broncos. Do you think they use the same fitting at the caliper as the 250s bc i no the brake line size is the exact same.
