Mods after 4 in. susp. lift

I'm about to get a 4 in. BDS Suspension lift w/ new shocks installed in a month or so, and the guys at FatBoyz 4x4 are telling me that I won't need to lengthen my drive shafts or lengthen the brake lines, is this correct? What keeps it from hyper extending if I accidentally get a tire in the air?! I assume that they have installed enough lifts to know what needs to be done, but you never know! Anyone else have any comments or experience with a 4 in. susp. lift on an 86 Bronco? Thanks.

86 Bronco XLT - 351W H.O., C6 to NP208, Dana 44 front, 9 in rear 3.50 gears turnin' 32 x 11.50 tires, Nothing fancy, just a good ol' huntin' truck!

Re: Mods after 4 in. susp. lift

Although mine is a different year, it is still for the most part the same. My experience with a Rancho 4" lift is that fatboyz are right. I run stock driveshaft and brake lines with no problems. Plenty of extension in both. I also do not have the swaybars on front or rear and can dial my rancho 9000's down to 1 (very soft), so I can get some pretty darn good travel and still no problems.

The coils (in front) and leafs (in the rear) keep it from hyper-extending. Don't pay the labor to have a shop install a lift, do it yourself and save and learn!
