So I completed this upgrade and tried it with stainless steel lines from the v6 hardbody. They appear to be longer and just want to hangout in my suspension. Anyone try this or know how to lay out the line where it wont get stuck in the sway bar/shock/ect?

Maybe we just cant do the stainless steel lines?

I don't know what you are looking at, but can you use a cable tie to zip tie the stainless steel lines to something (like the sway bar/shock that it is interfering with)?

This doesn't show it super well because I moved it out of the line up spot on the caliper. but if i move it back, the line just gets in the way of the sway bar and shock...don't really want to leave it like this because it can get loosened for like no reason at all...

Thx!

I'm not in my truck today.

Can you rotate the banjo bolt so that the braided line sticks straight up into the air?

At least that way you will not have a brake line hanging down, looking to get hung on everything you drive over.

Here are some pictures I have stored online of my suspension - may or may not be of help.

Did you order lines for a body lifted truck? I never trust the catalog kits, have the lines custom made locally.

Yes I probably should stick it up. That would help. But sticking it in the predefined spot is where I have my issue...

You should already have the twin piston calipers.
