braided brake line install issue. Quick response please.

So I'm currently working on installing some synergy braided brake lines onto my jeep the issue that I am having is it seems like there is almost way too much slack in the lines I'm not sure what to do with the extra slack. I have taken pictures of three different options of where the slack could go. Has anybody else had this issue. I know others have to be running extended brake lines how did you route yours. Thanks for your help y'all are the best.

Now I understand that my suspension is compressed right now but its still going to be a lot of slack. I'm running a tf 2.5 coil loft and will be installing a 1" coil spacer to give idea of how high she is in the rear.

I ran mine like your 3rd picture.i don't think it really matters though s long as you can cycle the suspension and they don't contact anything that will damage them.

Well since I had the tire off we threw a jack stand under the frame and let the axle drop. She had plenty of room with the loop in it thanks for your help.

This is by far my favorite jeep forum... So much attitude on the "other" forums, here you actually can get help from average owners without some sort of agenda.

I'm about to do the same. Though now I know not to order the Synergy lines. Probably going to order the Crown lines to the length I want.

Yeah depending on how high your lift is it maybe a good choice. The synergy lines are nice they were just a little long for my lift height. If your on the lower side the crowns would probably be a better choice.

This is an old thread for the brake lines I ended up running them with a loop in them and have had no issue after about 20000 miles or so. (Just to update).
