if your gonna buy new ones why not spend the money on longer stainless steel ones. They should only be around 50 a pair

350chevrolet i put longer lines on mine when i did the re 4.5" lift, which turned out to be more like 5.5". i put 22" in the front and 24" in the back. brake lines are cake just make sure to bleed the system really well when your done. i ended up having to replace my rear wheel cylinders too because the bleed screws were seized and i broke them off. EVEN IF ALL YOU DO IS FRONT LINES YOU NEED TO BLEED THE REAR TOO, its just a safety thing.

You disconnect that little bracket, then drill and tap the frame about 1.5" lower. I did it to mine. I have a picture, but I can't get to it from work.

Sb5551 Yj hoses are a direct replacment that will give you about 4 extra inches compared to your TJ hoses. I have a set of SS lines to if you would like to buy them also.

KBR97 you could just unbolt the retaining clip alongside the frame this way there a little more slack in the line. My kit came withlonger lines so i didnt have to worry.

Mrmikeypoo mine pulled tight at full flex. (4 in RC lift) I heard that YJ front hoses are a direct replacement and are longer. I just ordered longer SS hoses from 4WP. the new frame mounts were crap but the hoses are fine.

Sb5551 I didn't even touch my brake lines after installing my 4 inch lift. Are they really tight right now?
