Re: best 4" lift for an 01

With a 4" lift would I need to do longer brake lines,do I have to do anything to driveshaft ...or just space the carrier bearing ?
Or anything else I am not thinking of.
I want to lift the truck and run bigger wheels and tires,,just need to know what all I am getting into .

CSIPSD

Could you tell us more specs on your lift/wheel&tires. I've always wondered how you run 37's on only a 4" lift. Is your lift all springs, any rubbing, did you trim your fenders and most important how's is the ride quality? Thanks
