    SCARY. "Coupler, short hard line, lowers your mounting point"..... wow thats one of the scariest things I've seen. I don't even feel like going and commenting on their forum.

    What do you think was done 10-15 years ago before the fancy lines were on the market???

    People mounted the lines to a lower bulkhead...not just extended them with some hard line...thats just asking for trouble.

    What do you meen fancy lines....I just use longer factory rubber lines...

    Yep they had the front boggers on wrong after they did their steering.

    Oh....I see what is being said...
    I didn't think he was just adding a line without bracketing..
    I think he just tried to cover other options.

    Fancy lines....like the superlift braded lines...that's what I have..
