Forward brake lines

After my last trip, I noticed both my forward break lines sprung some leaks. I currently have a 2.5 inch lift.

Any suggestions for new lines? will the new Napa one work with my small lift?

I am very happy with them. Good luck!

It looks like your sway bar is coming up when flexing and coming in contact with the line. Adjust those JKS links all the way down and maybe think about moving the mounting point on your axle down a bit. Like this-
or any new line you get might see the same fate.

Thanks guys for the input.

TrebleHook: You keeps the ones from napa right? If I have them made, will they come with the banjo fittings?
