Potential issue that I may need resolved *suggestions*

Well, for those that may or may not know, I have had my 3.5" spindle lift kit on now for about a month or so.

I love the kit, and it makes the truck look way different.

Even have gotten some kudos from non-truck guys around these parts.


But, I have a concern that the Ford guys brought to my attention.

I have stock brake lines, and with the new spindle kit, it has gotten them stretched to their max, and this could be a potential problem down the road.

I have emailed Fabtech to see what they recommend, and have yet to get an answer.

For everyone else that has done this type of lift, what did you do for your brake lines? Or did you keep them stock.

What did you do, where did you get it, what brand, etc,etc.

I'm thinking of doing this pretty quick, better safe than sorry.

I would strongly suggest Zachs advice.. Summit-up a pair of front lines. Better to be safe then have one brake whilst on the road.

I've put in a query to Summit, see what they come back with. Ones I saw online only fit up to a '98, so I want to be sure they will fit before ordering.
