    You should probably get new longer shocks. Longer brake lines shouldnt be nessesary though, as you can space the mounting bracket up an inch or so.

    Before I installed my AAL,I was running 1" Toytec blocks with my stock TRD Billys.I found that I was "topping out" much more than I liked so I bought a set of 5125's and the problem was solved.Extended brake lines were not needed.

    wat?
    ^^ like stated, no need for the extended lines, but u'd need either longer shocks or the extenders. i ran the extenders on the stock billy's w/ the tsb and a 2" block on the old 07. if u want extra play from the brake lines, remove the 10mm bolt on the mounting bracket and it will allow for more play in the lines
