Mopar BBK Brake Lines on 4" Lift

As some of you know from my posts over the past number of years, I've run the Teraflex BBK for a long time now. I've been running Crown Performance brake lines and just don't like the line routing, below.



Routed like this they don't get pinched in the spings or hit the tires on full lock, but they rub on the upper control arms on full stuff. I've likd the look of the lines that come with the Mopar BBK, so I scored a set of them off Ebay. Like the Tera BBK the Mopar BBK calipers have the port on the back side, ratrher than the sides like stock. Mopar accomodaes this in the way they made the hard line at the caliper. These run in the stock position, between teh spring & shock and are secured with a stock style bracket.



Unfortunately, it doesn't appear they'll be long enough to work with my 4" lift unless I do some bracket magic. Mopar includes a set of brackets (77070107 + 11) with their 2" kit that raise the position of the bracket that goes on the spring bucket. They seem to be available via Mopar. I'm wondering if I combined these with a frame mount drop bracket (Teraflex, AEV, etc.) if the combination would get me enough slack. Thoughts?

I'm running the 4" Mopar lift and the Mopar BBK on my 2009 Rubi. Similar to your experience, I felt the lines included withe the 4" were just a tad short when you tried to use the nifty brackets that affix them to the lower spring bucket. After some research, I found these tidy little extension brackets from, of all mfgs, Pro-Comp:

Brackets on fleabay



Worked like a charm for me and I'm happy with the slack at full droop now.

Very cool. Did you use the lines that came with the BBK, or the lines from the 4" kit? The BBK lines are the same length as the late style stock lines.

I used the lines that came with the 4" kit, as I didn't put the BBK on until much later. Honestly don't know how they compare lengthwise, sorry.

Thanks. Got the brackets. They don't look like they'll allow me to use the BBK lines, still too short. I'll snap up a pair of the 4" kit lines & try again.

I was running the lines that came with my Metalcloak lift zip tied between my springs and shocks but wasn't too happy with the setup. When I installed my BBK, I picked up a pair of the Teraflex Brake line anchor brackets and moved the lines behind the shocks. I haven't wheeled it hard yet, but so far, I like em.

Well, following up on this one a year later I'm still running the setup pictured above. I tried the Teraflex brake line anchors last summer. After fiddling with them for quite a while I didn't feel they worked well with the stiff Crown performance lines I run so I took them back off. Still looking for a better solution I came across these from Crown perfornace that include the late JK spring bucket brackets. These look like a good solution. Anyone tried them?

I have a shorter variation of what you referenced in your link and they have been working great. Hope this helps.

Yes it does, thanks. It looks like they leave the spring bucket bracket loose on the line. Did you snug it up on the line after installation or leave it loose? Also, I'm looking at the 5" longer variant so I'd have plenty of length to accomodate the rear ports on the Teraflex calipers. In your experience is this the right way to approach the length decision? I have a 4" TF lift.

For the rear, I don't believe the extra length will matter. But the front I would say you will need the extra length due to the routing for the brake lines.

I left the front lines loose in the sleeve. It hasn't been an issue for me, so I believe you are on the right track.

Just looking for an update. I'm looking for some new lines to help with my problem in the front with the Teraflex BBK kit and 6pak shocks.
