    Since the addition of my 6" fabtech lift i noticed that the break lines all seem uncomforably tight. I feel like if I really flexed the suspension to one side that I could break a line. Am I suppose to buy some sort of extensions ?????

    Is this something that you just inspect on a one-of basis, checking the lines? Or do you just get the longer lines when you lift, no matter how much you lift?

    well for 0-3 inches is one of those check and see situations...but for a 6 inch lift itd be a pretty typical step

    check out crown performance. they have great prices and a ton of colors if your into that kind of things.

    you can get lines for around $25 each.

    Well this is my first lifted vehicle and yes man i installed it myself. Its sort of intimidating for someone like me with minimal mech experience. You have to take nearly everything off of the front end and you cut your cross member off of the frame which is nuts on a brand new truck. Also i voided all my warranties when i chose this lift.

    I got my extended brake line from Wheelersoffroad u can get away with not using extended brake lines on a 0-3" lift as long as you don't wheel.........if you flex and see them stretch...def get the extended lines.


    6" you should get them no matter what

    none but please give me your info.

    After I voided the warranty on my 08 GT500, I no longer have the balls to do anything like that. My dealer said I wont void anything when I add my 3" this weekend.

    You guys are awesome, I never even thought of that. looks like i will need to pick up some brake lines after i get my lift in June. hey ZERO COOL TACO, where they so tight that you thought they would brake during any kind of wheeling or just maybe they might if you were in some harry shit?
