I was thinking of going this way as well when I was checking out the Elka shocks... Decided not to go with long travel a-arms, but found out that you did need to change the brake lines according to the Houser site. I don't think it's just a matter of how much wider they'll be, but how much extra travel they have... Too much for stock brake lines according to Houser.

Good info to know. I was just replying from what I was getting from Houser.

yea i know what you mean... Technicaly, you should run them, but can get away with it. It's more of a liability issue, in my opinion, that any company would say that.

so to clarify, YES, run the proper lines... I just don't, lol
