    If the brake line change is due to a lift I understand why your changing the front lines to the wheel actuators, but I dont understand the lines to the master cylinder.

    If you did a body lift you can stretch out the coil on the master cylinder lines.
    You dont want to put flexible lines to the master cylinder the system should be plumbed with hard lines to the distribution block in back and line adaptors up front.
    Also if you using Stainless lines not all are created equal, they must be DOT approved to be used on street vehicles, if you ever get in an accident whether it's your fault or not you can be found at fault and heavily fined for using non-approved parts.

    I think he's talking hard steel lines, not flex hoses.
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.
