Swaybar disconnects on 2.5" Lift??????

I am buying a RE 2.5" coil lift for my 13 JKU and am thinking about getting disconnects. Will I have to extend the brake lines? Will they rip off at full articulation?

Thanks!!!!

Meh....

Disconnect lines from frame for more slack.

Actually, a very common sense approach. Furthermore, your your axle will only drop as far as your shocks allow so that is another factor. Nothing wrong with swapping out brake lines though, they aren't horribly expensive and can be done easily.

You can actually go pretty far (longer shocks) before the brake line limits you.


Stock brake line still attached to frame
