    Where did you guys get them? I have seen Superlift makes them for a 12" lift, but is this going to cut it? Links would be greatly appreciated as I am under the influence and don't want to read that much........:p:

    I think I got a few extra new ones. They are either 32" or 34" if you are puttin them on your d60 then the 10bolt banjo's will work with them. let me know if they will work and I will look around for them.

    I run the superlift ones for a 12" lift. At full droop they are just about tight.
    So if you can get longer ones.

    Supporting a board vendor is always a good way to go.


    Although another line routing option would be to route your lines like the rears. Have the main line come off the master to a frame/crossmember and then have one flex line in the middle of the chassis down to a "T" on the axle. The run the lines from the "T" to the calipers. That way you only need one flex line that doesn't need to be so long..

    You will need 3 flex lines, obviously one long one for the middle and a couple of short ones for the calipers. I considered doing a center drop for mine but I took the lazy way out and decided longer lines with some springs attached to the shocks would be the easier way to go. I had a local company called deering industries make my lines, iirrc they were something like 36" long. I got the lines that were kevlar coated.

    I initially looked at the 12" superlift lines but they would have just barely been too short. And for the kevlar coated superlift lines they were way more than what i paid at deering industries.

    Yes, 3 flex... But only one long flex to worry about(getting pulled off, etc.). Unlike two to worry about in a conventional set-up. :)
