This might just be my imagination, but i just put on a Teraflex 2.5 BB. I'm still rolling the factory wheels with all the backspacing so i can't really drive it around until the new rims/tires come in because the new sway arm in the back taps the inside of the rim a bit.

So when i went to just move the jeep, it didn't really come to a sudden stop when i hit the brakes. Is it possible i got air in the lines or something when putting the lift in? I didn't remove the lines, but they did get pulled on a bit when the axle was pulled down a bit to get the springs off.

Should i try and bleed them? I've only bleed brakes on older cars....is it something still do-able by the end user or do i need to take it to a specialist?

Yes, removed the brackets from the frame when taking the coils in and out. But i'm wondering if the lines stretched some and air got in the system somehow.

I suspect what you are feeling is nose dive/increased suspension movement giving the feeling that braking performance isn't as good. I cannot imagine any way to bend or stretch a line and get air in it then have it stay sealed against the pressure generated in the hydraulic system--meaning you'd have a leak.
