my truck is a 98 chevy k3500. i bought it used from someone that said it was used at the smithsonian. when i first got it needed everything replaced on the fuel system. then last year one of my brake lines snapped and had to replace it and now today the other one snapped. someone needs to do something about this problem before someone is killed. this is a hd truck and god forbid i was on a main road and not in my driveway. thank you for listening.[xxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6) *tr
