    I got the suspension tsb, and then a 2.5in leveling lift for my 09 4x4. The back end seems just a bit lower than the front. I was considering adding a readylift 1 1/4inch block to the back to bring it just a little higher. My question is, do I need longer brake lines? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.:D

    It is a good idea, but not 100% required...especially if you are not going to longer travel dampers in the rear.

    And especially if you don't offroad and/or flex the suspension.

    If you decide to get extended lines, get stainless braided lines.

    Yeah, I'm not very hardcore off road, dont have the money to fix a broken 1yr old truck lol. So the concensus seems its not necessary, but if I want to flex more get longer stainless braided lines. Thanks for the advice!
