Examine the position of both rear brake hoses to ensure adequate clearance between hoses and halfshafts and rear springs. When assessing the clearance, allowance must be made for full bump and rebound conditions, the former being most important and should be tested. If additional clearance is required, this may be obtained by resetting the hose attachment bracket on the chassis frame. It is essential that when a bracket is reset, the adjacent pipe union is checked for leaks in the normal way. I have seen many hoses that have flat spots caused by rubbing against the shafts. These should be replaced immediately.
