You must be a Cad Drafter/Designer, as am I.
You just have to learn to check the caps lock before typing in any other program/window.

Jack the truck up from the frame so the suspension droops all the way and then see if they are pulled tought

someone told me I could disconnect them from the frame to get another 2"-3" out of them. Is this true. I know a guy that has a 4 runner that has a 6" and is still running stock lines.

doesnt sound like a smart idea to me. Id imagine there is a lot of stress and rubbing the frame in that case.

Brake systems arnt something id half ass, get it done right.

Not sure if it will fit, but on my 96 with 4" lift, the front were ok a full droop, but went to this one .

Even though it says front right, seems all their brake lines are called front right, it was the correct one.
The stock was 18" and this one is just over 21" It was long enough to not be taught at full droop on the rear.

May see if they have one for the F250 or F350 4WD for your 89, which has the same fittings,just longer

i believ they are the ones in tonyr's post. I need to measure my stockers to see how much more I need. I think I need a couple more inches is all but as far as how long they are I have no idea.
