With a 4" lift do you have to replace brake lines??
Without a doubt, yes.
and go with some stainless steel line too you can find rubber but the breaks is not a place to start getting cheap /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif
i dunno guys, i put those napa brake hoses on my truck when i put on my R\C 4" lift., dang, that thing stops better then it ever did, also some new calipers /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
I am running a 4" lift, and I put my truck on a forklift to see max flex, and my stock brake lines were just fine. I am about to add some additional flex, so I now need new lines, but it was fine with the 4" lift.
not necessarily. If your front springs are stiff... or you run an anti-sway bar you may never flex enuff so that brake lines are a problem. Also, you could simply relocate the brackets that hold your brake lines. Would that be more work? sure, but you wouldnt HAVE to buy new brake lines. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
