Extended Brake Lines with 8" of lift?

Right now I have 3" spindles up front, 3" blocks in the rear, and will be installing 2" lift springs (and new UCA's), and 1.5" AAL in the rear this next weekend (hopefully). After that I'll be adding a 3" body lift, and 33's. Will I need extended brake lines to go with this new set-up? I was looking for ProComp braided cables, but I'm having trouble finding them. Also, driveshaft troubles with the total 8" lift?
