    Looking to lift my 09 double cab. I have a set of Deaver 10 leaf for the rear and I am curious if longer brake lines are a necessity..??

    Also is it necessary to re mount the proportioning valve??

    Welcome to TW.

    Longer brake lines are always a good idea with and/or longer travel suspension. As for the proportioning valve, do you have any pictures?

    I'm not sure how the new trucks are setup.... but the 1st gen trucks, you had to raise the BPV bracket up the same amount as your lift amount.

    I did some quick searching, and it looks like the 2nd gens (05+) don't have one (and /or its completely different).

    That's why I wanted to see some pictures. If we have a proportioning valve I want at that thing! The only thing I've found is the massive ABS unit under the hood on the passenger side by the firewall.

    if you are just putting the deavers on, then you dont need any lines or moving anything.You will need a longer rear shock tho. I did the same and no problems. You might need a axle shim or carrier bearing drop if you develop a vibration. I put a 2 degree steel axle shim in and it smoothed out some driveline vibration.

    Thanks for the quick responses guys!

    I was unaware there was no BPV.. I haven't crawled under it yet..

    So.. Longer brake lines= good but not a necessity..

    Now I just need to decide what rear shocks to go with.. Icon res are twice the price of the 5100's... I'll probably never do anything extreme enough to require the Icons but they sure are shiny!

    OME is good stuff...I'm very happy with mine so far.

    Wheelers Offroad has everything I needed for my lift...Lines, Shocks, and all the hardware and what not.
