Front axle

I have a question. What are the lines going to the front axle? They look like brake lines or something similar. I just had a look under the front end yesterday and was a little puzzled. These modern cars today.

I think they're connected to that useless peddle next to the gas.


Seriously though your question lacks details needed to answer it. There are also wheel speed sensors, etc.

Sorry, the axle is the round silver tube between the two front tires. This is not the tie rod, or anti-sway bar(or so I think) and has a line coming out of each end. The brake lines were in a different area(I know what brake lines are(I'm 51y/o(I have also replaced them from time to time))). Could these be a N2 anti-sway, maybe oil filled with a 90wt. oil, or hydrolic fluid? It was not familiar to me that's why I took notice of it. Of course it is on my 2011 which is the newest car I have had so far.
Thanks,
Troy Lawson

Sounds like you are describing the steering rack, and if that's the case those are hydraulic fluid lines.

There is no front axle on your car.
