4" Rough Country lift, Brake Lines Holding me up

All right ladies and gents, first time posting on the forums!

I am installing a 4" RC lift on my 95 yj, I'm from Illinois so rust is our enemy. The two torx bolts holding the brake line brackets won't budge and I'm stuck...

I'm looking at options, either be gentle and cut the bracket and just rebolt it to the shock tower, or suck it up and drop the money on some extended lines.

Any suggestions??

Mine were stuck as well when i did my lift. I cut off the bracket, drilled a new hole and used a self taping screw to remount.

I did the same as the above post and it worked for a while. Cut mine with a dremmel. Later on I added braided steel lines and love them.

At 4" you really need extended lines anyways.
