I noticed this clearance issue today (brake line to shock)...this doesn't look safe. :uhoh:




Did I incorrectly route this line?

I lowered the rear end a few months back which may have altered the clearance between the brake line and shock.

Thanks,

It looks very similar to what mine looked like when I first installed it. I noticed the bracket wasnt bent anywhere close to the same as the factory one. I took mine loose and just tweaked the bracket until it looked similar to the factory one, and had plenty of clearance.

Thanks. I just wanted to make sure I installed it correctly.

I will go see if I can bend it...

Alright, its goooood. Thanks!

Bending the bracket worked great. The brake line does not appear to have any significant damage.

I also put a o-ring under the axle breather fitting since it appeared to be leaking.
