    I have no idea how much travel my new suspension will have. I have 56's and 7" shackles up front and 63's and 3" "drop" shackles in the rear. I will ramp it to find out how much flex it has, but first it has to be driveable, which means I need brakelines. How long do they need to be? Front and rear btw. Thanks.

    Sounds like it's time to go to a center drop brakeline in the front. I bet you could make that extented rear Napa line work in the front great because of the placment of the crossmember. You might use the same ext line in the rear if you run a limiting strap...
