I welded a small tab a little to the lft of the shock tower in that picture and put a hole in the tab and then ran some small springs from the tab to the brake line. I think I stole the idea from crawltoy <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Welded the stockline holders down lower on the frame and use a spring to keep the lines off the shocks. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/fj.gif" border="0">

I also welded the stock tab down further on the frame, then used some 22" long braided lines, and zip tied them to the shock body.

Thanks guys, <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> I'm was thinking the same thing; mounting a tab for the hardline, then run the steel braided line along the shock. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> One question I did have; I have seen a brake line runner for the shock on some trucks, Its like a zip tie that goes around the shock but has a loop (gromet) type hole that the brake line runs through unrestricted. Anybody heard of these, or know who carries them? Are they not worth the price? <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

If it is a "zip tie style" thing that you are talking about, electrical stores should carry these types of items. I know that they make a zip tie w/ a hole in it. It is designed so that the zip tie can be screwed to a wall, but I guess you can run a brake line through the hole if you find big ones.
