Rear track bar question

Just put in a rear track bar relocation bracket. There are two rubber hoses at the axle end, do they go under or over the track bar? I did not look before I unbolted it. Btw, the thicker of the two is connected to a block that has the brake line routing from it, what is it?

Cycle your suspension and run the hoses such that they you don't have an interference problem. As long as no interference there is no magic to how they are run. The one you specifically mention is your brakeline. The soft line is the flexible connection from the hard line on the frame to the hard line on the axle.

I just installed a relocation bracket Friday Night. Mine went over the bar.

why does that line run from the rear axle to above the gas tank if its a soft brake line?

That's a vent hose for the axle housing.

Sorry, forgot the vent comes through the middle of that block. It is completely closed there. Just a round hole in middle of the block for mounting.
