The one on top of the pumpkin correct? I just took some pliers and it bent nicely but took a bit of force. I probably gained a couple inches of slack by doing this. Not the best way of doing things but it works. I run no swaybar and itís fine for that. I can get up on 2 wheels and itís not even tight.

Whoops. My bad.

However, even at full droop with that suspension there is plenty of slack on that line. You need to extend the line if you want more slack. The only time I've maxed out that line is when I loosened both the upper and lower control arm connections at axle with the sway bar end links disconnected and let that droop. You will never get that much droop with everything connected as normal, even with the longer shocks.

How long are your rear shocks? If they aren't much longer than stock, then don't worry about it. It is 'worst' at full droop, which is easy to check. The OEM swaybar doesn't limit rear articulation anyway... You can also get a set of lines with an extended rear line to deal with it (improved brake feel with stainless steel lines).

I would recommend getting a longer rear brake line if you haven't already: WHEELER'S OFF-ROAD SINGLE REAR BRAKE LINE FOR 1995-2004 TOYOTA TACOMA AND 1996-2002 TOYOTA 4RUNNER - FROM STOCK HEIGHT TO 3.5" LIFT (TF BLINE-04)
