    i disconnected my swaybar and i am wondering if i will have to add longer brake lines at full droop. if i grab the brake line and pull it tight, it seems like i have about 4 to 5" of play. i have a 3" susp lift on and run 36" swamper tsl radials. i am sure their is someone out their with a good or bad experience. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    You will need to play with it. Just disconnect the bar and put a tire on a big rock and see if they get tight. I run real long brake lines and use a carb. spring to keep the line off the tire so when i'am at full flex the brake line pulls on the spring and lets the line extend.
