    4\" or 6\" Brake lines?

    I currently have 2.5" Procomp springs in front,and add-a-leaves/blocks in rear. I noticed the other day that the stock lines on my 84K5 have little cracks in them. Procomp sells 4" or 6" kit. I think the 6" lines are gonna be way to long. Any thought's?

    I have 6" on my 2.5" lift. They are long, but if you flex alot then they are what you want. Also when you decide to lift it some more, you won't have to get new brake lines. Also the lines aren't that much to long.

    Its better to be long and not need it, then to come up short in the future.

    I guess I got the 6" on a 4" lift....the ones I have are made for 4-6" lift.

    How much does your truck flex? That will be the deciding factor on how long you want them

    I have the Procomp line on mine. When I ordered them the guy at Summit said they are either for a 4" or 6" lift but it is the same part. I have about 5" lift now and under full flex they are just starting to get snug. With just 2.5" springs they should work good for flexing. Mine won't be on much longer though since my RS9012's just showed up today./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I'd get the longest you can find. It can't hurt anything.
