    I made those for the Sub by calling Orme Bros and ordering the bits to make them.

    One thing about pre-made -3 hoses is that they have 2 very weak points in them, one right at the fitting end of each crimp sleave. If you go with pre-made hoses buy those that have a std -3 end on them and use adapters, then carry a couple screw together hose ends. If you break the end off of a pre-made with dedicated ends on it there isn't much you can do in the way of a trailside repair.

    check to see if stock lines off a van will be long enough, i know guys have used them with 4" lifts, i guess it depends on the amount of flex you have.
