Longer break lines?

Post by littlevanman » Wed Aug 03, 2011 1:45 am

I am about to install a 4" OLV lift on my 97 awd. Before I do, I want to have everything ready and waiting.
Will I need longer flexible break lines once the van is lifted? If so what kind will fit? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

The front lines are long enough and there should be an extension bracket for the rear line. No new lines are needed.
Current rides:
2013 Toyota Tundra DC 4x4
2008 Dodge Nitro 4x4
2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8S Special Edition
