Anyone have any ideas on what to do for front brake lines? I have rough country stainless braided lines and they are looped above LCA, what should i do for a bracket to keep it from getting in the way and being crunched? I installed some skyjacker hydro 7000's in the rear today lol, fronts are going on tomorrow.

put shocks on tonight and took it about 50ft. Up the road, I believe I need upper control arms bad.. It looks like pinion angles to steep as nd it sounds like front u joint on driveshaft is clunking... I have about 6.5" of lift up front, how long should UCA's be?

Just ordered IRO's fixed upper control arms, hopefully that cures the problems... How much will the RE 5.5" coils settle? I got 6.5" out of em and want to make sure I order right leaf packs so I dont end up having a ton of rake or the prerunner look going

Its the locker that's weak. It doesn't really explode from what I hear, it more or less just wears out.
