Brake Line Extension

Im going to 3 inches of lift and i need to extend my brake lines. Im looking to go with the synergy brake lines or something similar in price. I want a good product but i want a good price too. Any recommendations on the lines? Another question: are the relocation brackets necessary? That is probably my biggest concern. Thanks for yalls help.

You won't use relo brackets with longer lines. My lines came with my RK kit, but I'm sure Synergy's are fine. A lot of guys run Crown, too.

Mine are Kevlar wrapped in steel braid with a plastic coating. Some of the plastic has cracked (in 80K miles of hard use); but the lines are still great. I'd buy the best you can, not the cheapest. I know, I know, you want the best product for the cheapest price.

Thanks bud....I'm gonna look into those I'm just looking to allocate funds in different areas so any more than like 130 is just too much to pay for brake lines for me

Can you send me the link to where you bought those bc I'm about to place my orders tomorrow night but for all 4 they are like 129...I see earlier you said you got them for 89 shipped. For that price I will do all 4. Otherwise ill just do the fronts and relocation brackets in the rear

Make sure they're coated lines. If they don't have the plastic coating on them they should be replaced every two years, even sooner on offroad vehicles because the dirt gets between the steel braid and the inner teflon line and will wear holes and cause leaks and blowouts.
