Re: [T3] Rear brake hoses, IRS

I just went through that ordeal.  I'm working to get a
71 square auto back on the road.  The 211 611 775 B
hose is for a swing axle trans, the correct number for
the auto is 211 611 775 C.  This hose however seems to
be NLA, so I basically matched it up length wise, and
found one that was almost perfect.  The car is at work
now, so I can't check the package to see what hose I
got till tommorow.  I will look.  Amazing though how
much better a car stops with 4 good brake hoses!
