About to fit a 3 inch lift to the 100 series. Just wondering if anyone has any comments/experience on running extended brake lines or not running them. I am guessing that in the worst case, at full extension of the suspension, bang go the brakes....

Any comments?

Cheers

Toy truck, I just fitted a 2inch lift but ended up lifting it 4 inches over what it was (dist from centre of hub to wheel arch is 60.5cm and 64cm for front and rear respectively). With the 105 series the flexible brake line runs to the centre of the diff and then out to each side of the diff. Therefore the movement in the middle of the diff is nowhere near as bad as what it is at each wheel. With the diffs at full drop (during fitting) I still didn't get the brake lines taught. I'd reckon you be pretty safe with a 3 inch lift unless you had some other extreme suspension mods going on the rig.
