P.S. DONT LET THE DRILL CATCH AND RIP YOUR ARM OFF LIKE IT DID TO ME. HOLD IT WITH BOTH HANDS AND HOLD ON TIGHT.

these guys all say to put like heater hose or they were talkin about grommets at autozone or sumthin, but i dont have anything, i just took a file and rounded all the edges so they wouldnt be jagged, and rub through the line, you should be able to figure out sumthin

why not drill a hole in the cup and run a 90 i was thinking about doing that when my 1/2 inch line arrives is there something wrong with that setup or do you just not like it

i saw in another thread that a 90 can equal about 7 to 9 feet of extra line... less flow... THROUGH THE FRAME I GO!


by the way... i have brake lines (hard line) that is right above my upper control arm on the drivers side... can i bend these a bit to clear the control arm?

i would make the hole 3/4 and either wrap the line in some electrical tape at the hole .. you dont want the line to fit tightly in the hole .

thats what i would do, i would make it to where it can't move and with silicone you know its not going to rub thru the airline

if you run the air line through the frame and under the UCA you would need to drill a hole in the cup and install a 90.However if you run your line up above the UCA you can just leave it some slack and run it through the UCA

i heard somewhere that someone ran line through the shock hole and when they aired it out it pushed the line back up and the headers toasted the line??? i dont know if that applies to you but just be sure its not gonna go back up and hit anything when you air out
