Help me find these? please!

So after installing a readylift kit, my abs lines wont snap back into oem clips on radius arms. i realize that it's probably not going to casue harm but ill give it one last shot.

i saw a lifted 08 and went to see what he did for this problem. he had a pro comp lift and there where aftermarket abs line clips on his aftermarket radius arms. I CANT FIND THEM!!!

heres a blurry pic i took.

HIS



MINE

Thanks in advance...

Funny you mention this. I just did a big article on my Readylift install and this was a item I pointed out specifically although my problem was only when I was lowering the axle to get the spring back in with the spacer. Once it was installed and I had the axle snug up against the spring I didn't have the slack issue.

See if you have slack buried either side of the plug? You can read my article here:

I think you're looking at my pic. The axle shifted towards the driver side and i was rubbing with stock 20s and 35x12.5 toyo mts.
This was solved with aftermarket wheels that have some offset. I was bummed becasue I could clear the wheels and tires before lift. Put it on and started rubbing

Nice write-up. Looks like we had the same hiccups when installing. How do you like those billsteins? where did you order them from? I am using the stock shocks with the extensions. Think its time to get rid of those.
It does look like there is some slack on each side. I've tried to pull it through but its really stuck. I used some wd40 to lube it up but still wont go. I'll give it another shot tonight.

Bilsteins improved the ride. I'm curious why your cables are so much shorter. Be sure to let us know what you find!

That really sucks. Eliminate a problem, do something to make the truck look better, and the problem returns. What a bummer

Mine were super tight too. But, they can be pulled through. You have to work from both sides and keep the line as straight as possible when feeding ( forcing ) it through.

Both of mine that were lifted were like this. I just had to pull some slack and snap them in. Took 5 seconds to do it. If your axle shifted, does that mean it didn't come with something to for your trac bar? If it wasn't rubbing before the lift, it shouldn't do it after.
