Why bother running extended lines, when you can simply relocate the front brackets? Do a search here for "relocating front brake lines", and there is tutorial with pics. Its fairly straightforward to accomplish, and you won't need to buy extended lines. I relocated mine for a 4" lift, and haven't had any issues.

Depending on the flex of the springs, it may be too short. It works for 2.5" springs for sure. Or so I have read in this thread:
