After a bunch of searching, I need some advice from those of you with lifts. I plan on doing the TC/Radflow/Alcan lift soon and want to know the skinny on the brake lines. I plan on only running a 2" lift and going with the rear Bils that PRG offers for a 2" lift. Is the extended necessary if the sway bar is detached? My old X had a 3" lift and I didn't need to replace any lines. Are the ABS lines long enough or do they need to be lengthened too?
Same question up front.

The ABS Lines just need to be relocated, MC has a great and cheap 'How-To' on that one. As far as the brake lines, I did an AAL and Shackle lift on the rear with the sway bar removed, and even sitting stock the lines were stretched pretty thin. Considering that we are talking about your brakes, and it's only $70.00 plus shipping, I would say this is a must do. Why risk it when you can spend a couple bucks to make sure your car stops?

Thanks guys.. the money isn't a concern at all. I was just seeing if it was absolutely necessary. I had maybe an inch of extra slack on the Rover and it didn't concern me. If they are going to break on the X, then I will extend em. What about the front? I would look myself but the truck has been in the shop for a few days.
