    a solid 4" of lift and my shortbed 3/4ton truck.. Im going to have Earls make me some braided steel brakelines, but Im not sure what length to get.. I dont have the 4" springs installed in the truck yet, so I cant just go measure. What length have you guys used?? I wont be doing any extraordinary articulating so I dont need em THAT long but I want to play it safe.... anyone have a length for front & rear for a 4" lift? thanks guys :) its a dana-44 and 14bolt-FF, for what its worth..

    ORRRR if you have a suggestion for how much longer than stock, that would be good too.. I can measure the stock ones :) I figure I dont need em exactly 4" longer, or do I??

    The brake lines for a 4 to 6 inch lift are 6 incges longer than stock. So measure the stock ones and add at least 6 inches. I just put ones on that are 11 inches than stock. If you go this long you need to come up with a way to keep them from the tires and suspension.
