Shackle lift and brake lines help

I just picked up a 1 1/2" shackle lift for my jeep and would like to know if I will have to get longer brake lines. Do I have to un hook any of the safty gear,like the sway bar disconects. This lift kit will only be on for a few years until I get a 4" lift kit with shocks and new springs.

Re: Shackle lift and brake lines help

One option to save you some trouble down the road is to just get brake lines adequate for a 4" lift now, and spring them up out of the way in the meantime.

I've never been a fan of swaybars. My CJ doesn't even have them to begin with and still drives fine as long as I don't try to speed through corners. Be daring... remove the swaybar completely and be done with it.
