    Stephen I am going to be running your products soon and was wondering what length brake lines to un with a 6" lift in the front and 7" out the back. I posted this onthe main forum and got a suggestion to ask you here. Thanks in advance for the input, wether or not its from Stephen.

    With a half ton front axle, you should be fine with one of the kits for a 6" lift, we use the Pro-comps usually. With a D60 front, you'll want to go a little longer, we're starting to look into some of the kits for 8" and up for them. The D60 has a little different angle going into the caliper and tends to bind the lines at full droop when you turn.

    I may have found a good source for those steel braided lines. My friend bought some for his toyota from a local car shop. I'll look into what they have to offer, he said they were like $20 a piece. just my .02

    Hey Fr8train I didn't get over there today to check, but it is on my list of things to do for tomorrow. I'll post all the sizes and prices when I find out.
