So next weekend I am planning on bleeding the brakes on my 88 XJS for the first time, and am trying to gather all the needed equipment/tools/parts. The brakes are in OK enough shape to keep for now. Next year, I plan on dropping the rear suspension and doing a full brake and suspension job, and anything else that is needed back there. But for now, I just want to get out the old fluid.
I’m going ahead and replacing all three brake hoses, the one in the rear and the two in the front, for preventative measures, as they’re quite cheap.
I’m bleeding the rear brakes without dropping the frame, can I also replace that rear hose too? It seems to be off to the side, not too hard to get to?
Any advice would be useful. I’ve got a can of PB Blaster too
