6in lift

If I put a 6in lift on my 05 F250 do i need to lengthen the brake lines? Any other things I might need to know. I have worked on other trucks putting lifts on but never a 6.0

Definately the front 2 and rear single center. I would also add a dual front steering stabilizer.

Most usually your kit will come with brackets to relocated the brake line mount down lower. So, no you 'usually' do not have to buy longer lines.

did your kit come with spacers to drop the carrier bearing so you dont get driveshaft vibrations?

looks like a good kit, I dont see shims for the carrier bearing, thier easy to make, I dont see brake line relocation brackets or U bolts for the rear springs, not a deal breaker though those parts are cheap

He said the shims and brake brackets were included. It sounds like a complete kit so I assume the ubolts are included and if they aren't its still a good deal. The only problem is shipping might break the deal
