Are you talking about the little brakets that lower the brake lines down? I got those with my tuff country but were too much of a pain and cobble job. I got some 11" brake line add-ons and that seems to be working but is that much more rubber line to expand under pressure.
i seriously daubt that expansion on those lines is a problem. alright well if i do this lift, id probly get new brake lines. where can you get them? all i want is rubber ones. what is the napa part number? and how much are they, probly 2 front hoses and 1 rear hose. its a stock hight 87 chevy. 4x4, power brakes.

Hey check ebay for those brake lines. I have found items like that from time to time there. Infact I was looking for a Lift Kit there and found brake lines for a 6" lift a couple of weeks ago. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
problem with rubber lines is they can expand and loose your braking pressure. Steel braided is more rigid so it won't expand so all teh pressure goes to the calapers. Normally long stainless lines run about $90 or so.
Order hoses a good bit longer than you need. Nice to have several inches of hose left when you're totally flexed out, then have the "correct" length hoses stretching to their limits.[img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
