Parking brake line too tight after lift

    Full OME suspension, Level 8 Tracker 16" wheels, BFG T/A KO 285/75/16, etc., work in progress...
    I have two problems:

    1. After installing my OME leaf pack, my parking brake line is now a little too close to the thicker leaf packs. I think they will make contact when bottoming out and engaging the parking brakes.

    2. When I was reconnecting the parking brake line back on the drums, I had to pull it tighter for it to reach the connection points. I don't understand how lifting the rear will cause this. It like the parking brake line gotten shorter after the lift.

    Anyone else had these issues after the lift?

    I didn't run into either issue with my lift. How much lift did you install?

    I'm not sure it will help with your first problem, but the brake cable is adjustable. The following thread may help with your second issue:
