    You dont need longer break lines and longer bump stops? That’s my main concern... or is that just for off road applications.

    No that’s not needed for this lift it’s only supposed to raise up 2.75”

    There is a huge difference between "needed" and "highly recommended".

    Ok I haven’t seen seen this recommendation and the brake lines aren’t stressed.
