    My "Springer" Suspension is now installed. The truck is not driveable though. When lifting the truck to fit the new springs the rear brake line snapped and I have to fabricate some type of e-brake cable set-up. Stacey ordered a new brake line for a 12" lift for me and hopefully it will be long enough. Not sure what to do about the e-brake cables yet.

    Use A line lock Quick and easy,they have them now where you can lock up the front and rear. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif That is what I use,Hey Dave they dont make brake lines for A 12 inch lift 8 " and A brake line drop bracket is what we use.just a FYI /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
     
  7. Go with custom lines that's what I did..... ANY LENGTH YOU WANT LOL I think I got 36" lines in the front and a 32" in the Rear, PLEANTY OF LINE NOW! Probably gotta use springs to hold um up though. Later
