97 Bravada front brake line size??

I am replacing my rusty front brake lines and they appear to 3/16 line. So I went to Autozone and picked up some 3/16 line. When I compare the two I notice the line seems to be right but the nuts on the line are too small. I put a wrench on the size that is on the Bravada and it appears to be a 9/16. So my question is does that sound right? Does anybody know what the exact sizes I should be using to go between the ABS module and the calpier hoses?

Most of the fittings will be metric.
You will need some metric wrenches and metric brake line wrenches

Some lines may be bubble flare or double flare fittings.

Take you old line and fitting in and have them match them up.
Most good parts place have a good assortment of brake lines regular and metric double or bubble flare fittings.
And a good assortment of adapter fittings

It is a select fit deal on the lines
In case of a real odd fitting you may have to re flare one end of the line with a double or bubble flare brake line flaring set and use your old fitting.

Good luck and let us know how it goes
