Brake lines and Shocks
« on: January 14, 2011, 03:17:42 PM »
I'm interested if when you do a spring over conversion the stock brake lines can be retained in the front and rear, and if not what the best option in terms of aftermarket replacements would be assuming it's kept as a 15000# truck.

That goes for shocks as well in the rear. I'm assuming the fronts would remain stock because there is no distance change between the chassis and axle. But the rear requires leveling, so will the stock shock make up the 4", or are replacements needed? Any other adjustments needed would be helpful as well. Just trying to build a complete picture in my head of what's needed other drivetrain mods. Thanks.
Being prepared just let's us know how unprepared we really are.
