Re: Inline Tube

Wanted to bump this thread with my recent Inline Tube experience.

Nearly every part Inline Tube sent for my current Blazer build was incorrect. The parking brake components were for a 3/4t truck. Just discovered the charcoal can lines are for an unknown application and I'll likely clean and reuse my OEM pieces for that.

Rather than put Wes through another round of pain with Inline I personally called to order the brake hoses and explained to the sales guy my issues with the parking brake pieces. Yeah, he sent the correct kit per their catalog for a 4wd 72 Blazer but the kit erroneously calls for 15" long front hoses that by Inline's own catalog are for a mid-70's passenger car and are not the 19" correct hoses for a 72 GM K truck.

My initial email to Daniel Sheppard, salesman with Inline, regarding the erroneous brake hoses went unanswered so I disputed the charge with my credit company. Later Pete with Inline calls me and we go around and around about their error. Pete agreed to send a prepaid mailing slip to return their hoses. I've been credited my money. What kills me is the arrogant unfriendly tone of Pete who on my follow-up call says it's low on his priority list to investigate whether or not Inline has correct front brake hoses for 71-72 K trucks - terrible attitude that probably reflect the poor corporate culture at Inline Tube.
