    Just wondering what would the best way to get brakes up to the front for a 52" swap. I was thinking about a center drop but how would that work???

    No need to change the brakes just make sure you have flex line from the frame to the caliper that can handle the drop. I have superlift lines on mine and they were long enough. I also relocated my lines to right below the frame rail for reasons other then the 52" but it added some length there.

    I have seen a few guys come off the PV valve and T the front two lines together and then use a center drop off the engine crossmember with a rear T out to the ends the flex from there. Two much work for me and with the soon added hydro I have too many lines as is.
