Extended Front Brake Lines...

I have added a 5" SPOA lift and longer brake lines. I also have added OTT stearing. These are all from RR. I noticed if I install the lower end of the line (calaper end) facing the front, the lines rest on the stearing components. If I install the line facing the rear, the lines could get pinched between the bump stop. Doig it either way will not pass inspection. How do you folks keep the lines off the tie-rod bar/knuckle?

Can I hack off the bump stops and go on with life? That would fix the problem

Ideas and suggestions appriciated...

Install one end and then give the line a twist before installing the other end. You can also use a spring (thin, lightweight) attaching to the center of the line to the hole in the bracket where the front most body mount is (behind the bumper on the front clip).

I used some cheap bungee cord crap. Works fine but it is the first thing people ask about on my Zuk
