i have a 6" lift on my 92 and it has too short of front brake lines that it wants to pull out when it goes on to a lift...
ive got the Dana 44 TTB front end.
what do i need to do to keep it from breaking the brake lines when the front tires fully extend???
Thanks in advance

your joking?

right?
He's totally got to be playing with us. Nobody could be that stupid.

How on the planet earth could you not figure out by now that you needed longer brake lines? I mean, if you understand that you're doing a suspension lift and that everything else is becoming longer... brackets, springs, etc... how could you not realize that the brake lines need to be longer too?

Holy shit man, holy shit. :shocked

You and IRONHORSE don't happen to be related, right?

I guess you've been pounded enough. :smilie_slap
So 1st order some longer lines. Next unbolt the lines where they pass through the frame and pull them out just enough to clear the frame. Then bend them down under the frame and hook back up. That will keep you rolling until the longer ones get there, but ORDER LONGER ONES!!!

I'm no expert, but is bending them a good idea? Seems to me like it could cause them to crack and leak fluid right away, or if not then, with pressure applied to them?
Most people do this with 4" lifts and run them fine. I ran mine for a year like that with no problems. But longer lines is DEFINITELY the smarter move!

yeah man there are a bunch of companies that sell "extended" brake lines. superlift and rough country are just 2 of the many. they all enough room to fully flex and not come near to pulling apart...invest in some ASAP...

Limiting straps will work but then you will loose droop. You can get extended
brake lines so you dont have to limit your suspension droop. Its easy to add
extended brake lines but make sure you bleed the brakes ones you open up
the lines.
