Suggestions needed
I lifted my Jeep some more and now the e-brake cables are pulling out of my drums. Also does anyone have suggestions on what shocks I should use with a SOA and a 2.5in lift spring?

Thanks in advance.

Did you relocate the parking brakelines? and i recently did an soa and got skyjacker 7000 hyros for 135 for all 4 on ebay and they are workin great so far

i ran the same set up on my old yj. i used sky jacker, and i believe the longest sky jackers i could find were for 6" lift, i used those and flexed it out like mad, no problems.

i didnt relocate the ebrake cable because it goes over my exhaust pipe and i didnt figure it would matter much. as for the shocks i think i have the longest ones that skyjacker makes. I got them off of ebay also except that I have the nitros.

You have to move the cables or they will just pull out when you try to flex. you can just reroute the drivers side but the passanger side you have to redrill the hole on the bracket. the hole needs to be on the lowest part of the bracket

Do you have a picture that I can use as a reference?

Here is a picture, the top cable was rerouted from going under the fuel filter skid plate to above it and the bottem gable was redrilled further down on the mounting bracket and it allowed for an extra 6 in. or so of play
