When replacing the rear rubber brake lines on a 2017 Ram 1500 4X4, does this part unscrew from itself. It’s where the hard line meets the rubber line?

Looks like a standoff to keep it away from the body or axle. New part didn't come with one?

The new part has the channel for the stand off. Looks totally different. It also might be the wrong part. Won’t know until I call tomorrow.

This brings up the question why would you be replacing a brake line on a 2017? Car accident?

[replacing with steel braided lines for more more control towing.

OT How is that 1/4" rod for holding that in place? I don't like putting my metal brake lines through repeated motions. Most brackets I've seen are more robust.

How does steel braided lines give more control? Should have all the control you need from the get go.

First, it does not come apart there. It is one piece from factory. Replacement parts are two pieces.

Second, replacing rubber brake lines with steel braided reduces soft pedal feel. There is a big difference. Rubber lines expand under pressure. Also, less chance of of blowing a line under hard braking in an emergency.

For track use it may have a noticeable difference, but in normal street use, not significant. Same as drilled rotors. A lot of marketing hype.

Obliviously you don’t tow a lot.
