    I just bought some stainless steel brake lines for my blazer, i orderd them longer so i would not have to change them in the future if i go bigger lift. I got the front and rear lines 28 inches long. I am only at 4 inches of lift right now what is the best way to keep them from getting caught up on stuff?

    That's what I did too. Use small zipties so that the zip tie breaks rather than the brake line if it ever binds up.

    Zip tie a low tension throttle return spring on to the hose. This will keep it out of the way, but if your suspension flexes enough that you need more it will give temporarily and then go right back to where it was. Use one that doesn't have a lot of tension though.
