Front brake lines for Currie 4" lift?

It looks like Savvy has stopped selling them.

Are there any premade lines that work good with this lift and flex?

IIRC every time I've bought hoses they come with new crush washers.

Just go to Napa and have them match your old washer.

Also, I opted not to go with oem yj hoses, instead Napa actually had hoses listed for a TJ with a raised suspension, and they happen to be four inches longer than stock. They weren't largely available, but I ordered them and used them. I like have the entire hose be a soft line instead of the YJ lines having the hard line coming off the caliper. I have Currie 4" springs and plenty of hose left with about 7" of downtravel

I want a J-Series

Differences that don't make a difference are worth nothing.

They were also about an inch or two longer than YJ hoses and I was able to get them for the same cost, so there...

So... basically having the extra inch or two doesn't make a difference if you don't use it.

I ordered Raybestos BH38862 and BH38861 as I suspect that my current YJ lines may have casused the calipers to stick.

Exactly. How much would you pay for a custom hose that had a couple more inches of length? I'm guessing not much but based on your theory you should.

Unless you go to a travel bias that is stupidly skewed toward down travel, the YJ hoses work just fine. Well, I suppose if you pointed the hard line coming off the caliper down you could create issues but if you did that you deserve it.

Are we talking about the front or the rear?
