    i am posting this for my friend
    we are goin to lift his 99 s10 blazer, with the 5inch trailmaster lift then torque it up w/ the torsion bars about 1.5 more inches.
    he was wondering if we do this will he have to get new brakelines?
    and would he need a new steering column

    The IFS lift kits that I've seen come with new, longer brake lines. You'll definitely need them with that much lift. Check with the manufacturer to see if they're included in the kit.

    A suspension lift won't change the relationship between the steering column and the steering box, so you won't have to mess with the column at all. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif That only becomes a problem when you install a body lift.

    You have 2 choices:
    1) Re-locate where the flex line mounts to the frame (what most of the kits say to do)
    2) Get longer lines

    If you want to get longer lines either go to a local speed shop and they should be able to hook you up, or try http://www.earlsperformance.com/html/

    The TrailMaster kit gives you new brackets to lower the stock lines. If you have any questions call them, they were great to talk to when i got mine. I got it used from a rollover with no destructions for $45.00. They faxed me a set for free
    It's not hard to put on but takes some time. Took me about 24 hours over 3 days, of course i had to paint it all too in that time ( orange was fugly )
