Okay just ordered my shocks from kolak and hew recommend 5100s for the front and 5125 for the rear. So Im waiting for my iro 3.5in benchmark kit with jks disconnects and new rear coils. Now the question is would I need extended brake lines because of the lift and my using the jks disconnects?

i would say yes on the brake lines get some from iro when i bought them they were 99$
when you flex and turn with out a sway bar you will need them!!!!

I had 4.5" for a while without new brake lines. I never tore one. Came close though.

you might be fine with not taking your sway bars off but you got disconnects for a reason!!! right?? . since your doing all this might as well buy some brake lines at least the fronts!

Thats true. But is it easy to change the brake lines and I dont need them after my lift If I dont go off roading for a while right?

Also does anyone know a tut that has pictures installing a IRO 3.5in lift?

Was very disappointed today. I received 2 of the 3 shippments from kolak and iro yesterday and the last shippment today. I was hopeing to come home from work to fully install my lift, but when I opened the box it was just the front coils and no rear coils. So I emailed iro and still waiting on their response. After that I just said f it and install everything till they ship me my rear coils.

So its now 7pm and its dark outside so I get my 2 flood lights and tools and got to working on it. Everything was easy to take out but the track bar bracket, took me 1hr to take it out. And while I was installing it, I let the axles drop as low as the can and even pushed it down with my feet and it looks like my brake lines still have enough play in them. Now the only question is do I need extened bump stops and or how did everyone install their bilstein shocks because I cant seem to tighten it down unless I use an allen wrench and a regular wrench to tighten it down(Fronts that is).

This is the 3rd freaking time you have posting this garbage. You are officially a write off in my book. A lost cause. And the worst of all a whiner.

You will have a hard time tweaking one of their bent control arms. Even though they are already bent, they are strong

get the ones with the bend you will be fine. By tweaking he means messing them up or bending them from their original state.
