HELP!? (im new)

hey all,
my name is chris, im a new wheeler and decided to join this site, im planning a build and currently in the middle of installing a r/c 4inch lift, i have quite a few questions, also my jeep needs to be able to go down the road (im a weekend warrior so to say) but i want as much flex as possible...
1. do i need my rear trac bar? i cant get the bolt out (seised up or somthing) on the bottom side, making my jeep sag to the drivers side so i planed on cutting it off.
2. where can i find the coiled brake line for drivers side front, it broke right at the backet where it connects to the rubber line.
3. are boomerang shackles worth the money over regular shackles? i planned on going 1.25 inch.
ANY OTHER GOOD ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

im kinda on a tight budget due to buying an engagement ring last friday, but il find a way to do things right

Welcome to the world of Jeeps.......

1. Ditch the track bar. You want miss it and you will get a better ride.

2. Try Quadratec for the extended brake line kit. You will probably need extended lines with that lift. I went with stock until I was uncomfortable with the stock ones. Looked like they were stretching........

3. Have no personal experience with boomerang shackles.

I'll answer the boom question.

The booms help you clear the rear frame brace (when installed correctly) and help prevent spring inversion in the front (once again, when installed correctly).

Personal recommendation, don't go more than 1" lift on shackles.

Yes, those brake lines go from your hard line to your calipers. I ran 3 years without extended bump stops, but have them now. Not sure why I put them on since my front axle misses them at full stuff.
