SPOA Shock Mounts/Front Brake Lines

I installed the Petroworks front shock mounts this evening. They look good but I wanted to get some confirmation that the clearance between shock and bumpstop is o.k. There is some clearance but not having the benefit of ever seeing them installed, I wanted to bounce it off those who have done this before.

The other question I have is related to my front brake lines. I installed the fitting to the rear of the caliper to try to control the length but they still want to rub on the tire. What is everyone doing with the extra length?

Any help is appreciated.

Re: SPOA Shock Mounts/Front Brake Lines

If you keep between 2-.25" inbetween the sping and stop that will keep you from overinverting the spring. As far as the brake line I would put it back in the forward position just give the line a twist so it falls into an s-config. then if it is still hitting you can use a spring from the hardware store to pull it to the frame or a small bugie cord with zip ties..

Re: SPOA Shock Mounts/Front Brake Lines

How much space is there between your axle and bumpstop? I don't have a spacer in mine and it measures around 6.75 inches. I need to fix this before I install my rears up front.
Rockrat, so you say we need to have 2.25 inches between the axle and bumpstop. I will need over 4 inches of spacers. That is going to take some engineering. JCC

I used small bungees on the metal collar in the middle of the brake lines to hold them away from the tires.

I twisted the 26" lines I use to help clear the lugs on my 33" T-birds. I also covered the lines in a poly hose cover I use at my shop to protect airlines from machine parts. I can't post a pic now cuz my main computer is DOA but it works great.

Re: SPOA Shock Mounts/Front Brake Lines

Where the stop is now it will hit the housing, not the spring. I have 3.5" between the stop and the axle. Is this too much?

With the helper springs in the rear do I need to worry about them? With the spring over, I lost my stops where they used to be held in place by the u-bolts.

Thanks to all for the replies. I changed the brake lines and I think I'm o.k. I may still need a spring or a bungee on the drivers side though. It doesn't want to lay just right.
