Brake lines for modified OME?

I got rustys spacers for the front and rear and was wondering if brake line length would be an issue. Do you have to get extended brake lines or any kind of drop bracket to compensate for a total of 4 inch lift front and rear? Stacking spacers up front with extended studs for the strut plates and going another 1.5 out back with removing the stock coil insulator and adding in a 2 inch spacer to get a full 4 inch lift.

Put it together and then take a look at how much slack you have in the brake lines. Flex it out somewhere you have control of your suspension travel - ideally an RTI ramp but you get what I'm saying.
The front you ought to be able to tell pretty quick since you're basically pushing the "default" down travel by stacking spacers. The rear probably has a little more room to play with.

FWIW when I modified mine with 1 Rusty's spacer up front and combined a .5" poly spacer with extra coil isolaters out back I did not do anything in regards to brake lines. Granted, it's about a half inch under what you'll be, but I don't have any issues - and it's been tested..........I've never disco'd the sway bars, but I've wheeled it hard a few times since the modification.
