rear leaf install help

Im putting an 8" Fabtech Lift on my truck and the rear is no blocks. Does anyone know which end of the leaf goes on which side? One Side is double wrapped and the other is only single.

Also it doesnt seem like the rear brake line is going to be long enough do I have to get a longer one or is there a trick to get around it?

Thanks

you measure the center pin of your spring to the end. the longer side should go facing forward. Check this theory on your old springs. as for the line...on my truck i just bent the brackets that held the brake lines down. Some people just by longer lines...it really depends on how much articulation you plan on having.

They sell short SS extensions in different lengths for the brake lines.
