    Question Bumpstops and Brakelines....

    ok, got a question. I have a 4/5 drop on the blaze. i cut the bumpstops on it, i cut the first 'nub' off and it's still sitting against the metal but the truck is sitting even. which is what i want, is that a problem? should i cut them more?

    Also, the brake lines, everyone says to flip the brake lines so it wont rub or anything. I'll post a picture off it, (there another one on my WWW, as well as a pic of the bumpstops) Do i need to flip it with that amount of clearence it has right now??

    Thank you for your help....

    That picture is at an angle...theres about an Inch of clearence from the top of the line to the axle. Plus if i leave the bumpstops as is wont those prevent it from hitting the brake lines?? or do i really have to cut the bumpstops??

    Sorry, i always think of something else to add after i already post, sorry....thank you for your help....

    Can't tell from the pictures but is it posible your brake lines could hit something? Like if you hit a big bump? If so you'll wish you spent the other 30 min doing it when a suburban stops in front of you and you hit the brakes and nothing happenes. :(

    Just keep an eye on the line. If you develop a "clean" shiny spot on your frame the line is rubbing.
