longer brake lines,and you might have to loosen the bolt on the bar that goes to your steering box from the steering wheel and pull it out a bit then tighten it back up[cheers]

he's lifting the body off the frame, brake lines shouldn't even be a concern

you don't need longer break lines, well least in all the ones i have done you don't.. the shifter should be fine.. only think is most common is a long steering shaft.. if you bought a kit it comes with an extention you didn't so either probably have to buy one or make one

i have a 93 f-150 and i just did a body lift. the stock brake lines will be fine and and tranny has a cable so you wont have to mess with that. the only thing that came with the kit that you couldnt make was i steering extension under the dash but other than thatshould be easy. also i have a friend that has a 89 f-250 and his body lift kit didnt come with the steering extension so i guess there different between body styles

theres brackets that hold the rad to the body so you cant lower the rad. my body lift came with drop brackets for the fan shroud

I find it rather funny how many people have comnmented on having to drop the fan shroud to make you lift work right, Dam that's funny.
