3rd Gen 1LE brake hose options post-2010?

I've done a fair amount of searching but haven't found any viable information updated since about 2008. If there are, please point me to it, because my search-fu is failing miserably. I'm going into the brake system on our 1992 B4C 1LE Camaro RS and figure I might as well replace the brake hoses while I'm there. I'd like to get braided steel, but if I have to settle on rubber, that'll work, too.

It looks like the last few posts on the matter listed an Earl's kit P/N 28A190 ERL. I'm not finding any vendors listing that P/N anymore. I've gone to the Holley web site (the multi-national conglomerate that bought Earl's), and the more _specific_ I get on the search parameters, the _less_ specific the results get! I've been on the Russell Performance web site, but to download their 'online' catalog just results in a spinning icon. Goodridge doesn't seem to list a 1LE kit anymore, either. I see Hawks 3rd Gen lists a set for 'performance brakes', and while they do list other kits that are specifically 'except 1LE', they don't state if the 'performance' set will work on a 1LE. I'd think that would be kind of an important fitment, but who am I to judge?

Anyway, does anyone know of any, hopefully specific part number, brake hose kit that will properly-fit a 92 Camaro 1LE? Thanks!

Think I got my last set from goodridge but it was a long time ago. I called them directly but still got the wrong thread pitch banjo fittings for the rear calipers. I'd give them a call, may still have them or could make them?

You can have brake hoses made to length. Measure up what you have and start making some phone calls. If you don't know how to get that done then a place like Kore3 can do it for you.

I found what I think are 1LE rubber hoses on Rock Auto. I have a set on the way. I talked to Hawks and they stated that the braided set for the 'performance' option will fit the 1LE, so I have a set of those on their way, too. I'll report back success or failure when the stuff arrives and I get under the car.
