    Aight, I searched but I could've missed this, but I need new brake lines for my lift, and I was trying to figure how long to make them. I know I should measure from full droop, but can I achieve full droop just by picking up on the frame until the wheels come off the ground? I was thinking that when I flex, my droop would be more than that on one side b/c there'd be pressure pushing up on the other side, does anybody know if this makes sense, and if so how i should figure how long my lines should be? I have 4 inch springs in the front w/ the second leaf removed b/c that one has the most tension in it, so my front's flexy as hell. Any help would eb appreciated...
