Putting 1974 a/e-body disc bakes on my 1972 Charger and trying to get the correct length brake hoses for it. A-body ones I thought would work are too short and not sure which ones to use. Tring to get my front suspension all on this weekend since my Firm Feel steering box just showed up. What hoses can I use from which model of car?

Seeing that the 71-2 B body is very similar to the 70-74 E body in many respects, you should be able to use 71-2 B body lines, or 70-74 E body lines, the calipers are the same, location is the same, all the front end pieces are interchangeable

Calipers are different between the A & E body line of cars.

73 - 76 A Bodies use "SLIDER" type of calipers.
70-74 E Body, 70-72 B body cars use "PIN TYPE" calipers.

Gotta know what type caliper the op is using before telling him what type hose to buy.
Then also gotta know if mounting the calipers towards the front of the car, or the rear.
Lot's to find out.

Others have been using the rubber flex hoses, from the Aspen & Volare, line of cars.

^^ agreed, check out a hose for a 78 volare at your parts house. cut off half of the metal bracket that is in the middle of the length of the hose for aesthetics as it ain't needed for your app.

I think Doctor Diff sells the correct hoses for the various brake swaps.

I use 72 Charger brakes on my Savoy with forward mount pin type calipers and the Wagner E-body hoses worked perfectly.

The op is using SLIDER type calipers, which aren't original to his Charger.

If you are using '74 slider calipers, mount them toward the front and use '73-'76 A-body (disc) hoses.
