RE: chevy suburban brake rear brake hose
The parts to make the proper repair are usually available at any parts store. You can't bypass the rubber hose as it is there to allow for movement.

You didn't provide any information as to the Year, Engine, Transmission, Location, etc. so I can't really provide any specific advice. There are things to consider as to if the vehicle has Anti-Lock brakes, etc. Either way, put it back to the way it is. Some states have annual vehicle safety inspections. Tampering with the brake system can cause it to fail this inspection.

yes sir i know but the connection where the rubber hose and and the metal brake line are rusted and can't brake free would have to replace the whole metal line so i just cut metal line and rubber hose and connected together will this work.

RE: chevy suburban brake rear brake hose
Well; if nothing else, you managed to completely confuse me! HOW did you hook them together???

Until I can understand what you have done I am going to have to answer "NO" to your question. If the metal line is in good shape you could cut it back to the length of a replacement line. You can usually get a 6" or a 1 foot piece that already has fittings on it. Then you will need a line fitting and a female connector. You will need to install the fitting on the line with a Double Flaring tool. Use your connector to install the short line and replace the rubber line.

Please get back to us on that connection that you made. I am driving myself nuts trying to figure that one out! Also, what is the YEAR, Mileage, Engine, ABS equipped?
