extended brake lines

im adding the acos to my coils... so ill have around 4'' of lift..

i plan on using front yj brake lines

http://www.stu-offroad.com/suspensio...e/brakes-1.htm

guy says they are like 3'' longer than stock lines..

my question is on the rear lines.. do you think ill need to extend them too? also are the yj lines longer than tj lines in the rear too?

Do you still have the stock upper control arms in the rear? If so I wouldn't worry about them as the break lines are attached to the control arm and are at no risk of over extending. The fronts are the ones to worry about because of disconnected sway bars and the amount of flexing the front does.

I would trust Stu's info. He's a great guy.

MoA, do you want to use the 2" procomp shocks with the 2" PC springs and the 2" spacers?
then the stock brake lines will be ok. the axle canĀ“t come down more with the spacers because the shocks have the same lenght than before.

no.. im getting all 4 re monotubes for 3.5-4.5'' of lift =D should ride pretty nicely

after talking to dirk i figured to make my final goal a sa lift.. i was wanting to go with a la kit this coming summer.. but im thinking of getting all jks adjustable cas in the future.. thinking of doing a sye instead of tube fenders this winter actually..

i got a lot of things i have to do to my jeep in order to go bigger..

i was reading a hp dana 30 swap.. i got the cherokee axle sitting in my driveway right next to my jeep =D thinking of talking my parents into letting me swap them out.. i think the article said it was a complete bolt in upgrade.. unless i have to regear..

if i have to regear i would just wait until i get something different for the rear.. but then id have to do something about the cherokee =/

hows the ome coils nick? dirk was convincing me into getting a set.. but i believe im gonna wait until i can go bigger.. i know they will lift my jeep atleast 2'' above the procomp coils i got
