Braveheart12JK I have a sport 2DR with the same lift except using the TeraFlex 9550 shocks brake line relocaters worked great and gave plenty of room for this setup.

Afterwards I installed the 3/4 daystar spacers in the rear to level it out. The jeep looks absolutely awesome and rides better than stock as well.
Yep.. I also added 1" spacers to the rear.

Same here

I thought the fronts were longer to allow for more travel when disco'd

What model jeep you have?

Daniel_M The relocation brackets should suffice as long as you don't plan on going bigger soon. New brake lines can be expensive but any high quality steel braided line will be good. Crown are good ones. But save the money and get the brackets.

Which is better

I installed a TF 2.5 coil lift on my 2012 Kj two door with the Bilstein 5100 shocks. I also installed the JKS discos. Anyways, when I lift the jeep up so the axle drops, the front brake lines are not tight but definitely need to be lengthened. I know if I were to disconnect the sway bar, the brake lines would be too tight or maybe even snap. I'm wondering what you recommend. Should I get the TF front brake line relocation brackets or go with extended brake lines. If you recommend longer brake lines, what brand is good. I heard the Crown lines are good.
Thanks in advance
