02Ram4x4 is on a distinguished road
Default 2002 brake lines

So im on my way home from work and my wife tells me the brakes on the truck are mushy and not really working!!! funny when i drove it to the train station they were fine, so when i get to the truck i find that one of the lines coming from the ABS housing and master clyinder has a pin hole, my very luck wife made it across town without lossing the brakes completely...hugged her like crazy cause she could have been severly hurt, But with that said my 02 has 87000 miles and the brake lines on the driver side from the ABS housing and master cylinder were rusted at certain bends and fraile has anyone had the problem remotely close to this, i have already fix the problem with new brake line, but just wondering if this is a common problem due to material being used at the factory

tjbiker031 will become famous soon enoughtjbiker031 will become famous soon enough

Anybody please correct me if i am wrong. My father has been a ford master tech for 25+ years and most of my knowledge is blue oval based and i am new to Dodge, but i never really heard of that being a major issue. i have seen a problem similar where a manufactures defect, poor road conditions, road salt, and lack of overall maintenance plays a part in attacking the weak points if a break line/hydraulic line.
