yes, this does not come with everything needed.

the fabtech kits at Jusnes Modified come with everything needed to finish off the lift, including shocks, and shipping

I got mine a fabtech used, from some forum on the net, mabye here and didn't extend anything and installed in like 2 hours and I've never done it, just read the directions, oh and all hand tools, no air tools. I paid like 175 for them and some 3" blocks. Not a bad deal.

Pertaining to your original question, you dont need new brake lines, but what alot of people have done that no one else suggested yet is they dropped the mount that would cause them to be tight and zip tied them at a lower spot. Mnay of the lifted members have done that, but havent posted yet.
