    I just installed 6" SS braided brakelines into my truck that has a 4" lift. I am wondering how to tie the front lines away so they won't come in contact with the tires, but so they will still have freedom to move with suspension travel. Thanks.

    My buddy used a long, lightweight spring. It holds the line out of the way and will stretch out as the suspension moves. Seems to work pretty well.
