Question Hard to find brake hose

I have a 1994 with 4WD and only RW ABS. I want to replace my front flex hoses but am having a hell of a time finding the right one. Literally! Everywhere I look I find the left side hose, but not the right side. I've even called the retailers and they suggest parts but are not certain it is the right one. Has anyone else had this problem? Where do you all get your brake hoses?

Yeah, you aren't kidding. I found some part numbers for you, Raybestos number is BH380344, Dorman H380344. However, it does not say specifically it's for a rear wheel abs 4wd, it just says 4wd. For the left side, is specifically says 4wheel or rear. Optimistically, I would hope this means the right is the same on both options, but I would have to order one and check. The last resort would be call the dealer (sorry), and they can look it up by VIN.

Yeah Ramtech, Rock Auto is who I was dealing with, they are great, I just wish they had better parts descriptions.

MACKEYAUTOREPAIR, that's what I came up with also...

heres what I ended up getting...


Part Number Part Type Price EA Core EA Quantity Total

DORMAN H380343 Hydraulic Hose $ 12.19 $ 0.00 1 $ 12.19
DORMAN H380344 Hydraulic Hose $ 12.04 $ 0.00 1 $ 12.04

Seemed to match up pretty good with the old hoses. One weird thing is that one had a silver metal and the other a yellowish one.. no matter as I painted all the metal before installing to help slow down the rust, because, well, I'm crazy like that!

Also had the bend part of the metal to match the shape of the old ones, easy to do no big deal. this sent the hose in the right direction
