I have a really dumb question, but Im trying to help out a really good friend that I sold my old tahoe to. It has a steel brake line that appears to run the entire length of the truck, that has a small section of braided, instead of just plain steel line. It appears to be leaking in this small section of braided line. Can we just cut this section out and replace with rubber line? I know most are going to say, you supposed to do it the other way around, upgrade from rubber to stainless steel. Funds are very limited and he needs to be able to get to work at least until it can be repaired more permanently when funds permit. Any thoughts/help is greatly appreciated!
