    OK, I originally put the Napa extended brake lines on my 10 bolt and have been working fine. Just got done putting in the D60 and at full droop the napa lines are about 5" shy of even coming close to the caliper. Caliper brackets only fit one way so the caliper has to be in the correct position, so I'm stumped. I'm only running 4" springs, 1.5" shackle and with the frame on jack stands and the axle hanging by the springs, they aren't even close. Anyone know which ones to go with now?

    Just go get some extensions. That is what I did. I know I have posted the part numbers here before.
    They will gove you an extra 11 inches

    I searched your posts and found it. 14 is a lot when I'm only needing like 7 more, course I never would have to worry about them ever being too short again.

    you could drop the line to a lower point on the frame to help. i took my 83 and cut off line brackets and remounted them to the bump stop spots as i ran 6" lift front. worked great.
