need some help with my lift im installing.

hi, im installing my own lift and ive ran into some problems as expected. i guess i need to extend my brake lines with this kit correct? its a 6.5" pro comp all spring lift. next, my shocks installed fine in the front but they are like 4 inches short in the back for some reason, do i loosen the lower shock bracket and rotate it up to get the mount right? instructions don't say anything about this. also, i have a pic below of how i think my rear spring all goes together, just curious if the aluminum block is for sure i piece i need. the way the instructions show it looks as it belongs there.do i need to get my front drive shaft lengthened, or does someone make a spacer to go on the flange or something to extend it.
on the front sway bar links, the instructions say to reuse the oem links, the ones in the kit are longer and would make the sway bar more parellel with the ground. im a newbie as this stuff and i just want my truck right when im done. also my truck in a 01 f250.


Thanks for any help guys!!!!

looks like they sent you the wrong shocks. people dont like running 2 blocks like your setup but its the same on my dads truck and it seems fine. been on there for 60k miles and never had a problem offroad or towing a 11,000lb fith wheel.
good luck
