Steel braided brake lines recommendations?

Hey guys I am looking for some steel braided brake lines for my 2001 F250 4WD. All of the lines I am finding are for trucks with a 4in lift or more. My truck is not lifted, does anyone know were I can get a good set of braided brake lines for a truck that is not lifted? can I just use lines for trucks with a lift or am I going to have a bunch of extra line hanging in the way?

Thanks

subscribed as I am looking for these also for my 2WD. I looked at the Russell website and you are correct....they are for lifted trucks....
Truck and SUV Brake Hose Kits - Brake and Clutch Hose - Russell Performance Products

They also don't carry them for 2WD SD trucks.


Found these but know nothing about their quality......

These are the ones I'll be ordering, going for the five piece kit.

Russell and Crown are the other too I have seen FTE member's use.

You sure the 4x4s won't work, are they a physically different configuration? If you "don't know" you may want to call and speak with someone. I have the Crowns on mine - it is a 4x4.

I went with the KLM....made by Crown. I sent pics of my rear lines to KLM to verify if cutting and flaring would be necessary to install rear lines. NOT required on my truck!

Ordered and waiting for custom build and then delivery

I bought a set from egrbrakes.com.
Got the 5-piece set (for f250) to fit my 2wd Excursion.
The only "issue" was I couldn't get the clip to snap on to the bracket on the front. A big cable tie wrapped twice fixed it for me.

I called and ordered, explaining the 2wd superduty kit would fit the excursion.
I ordered for a 2004 superduty, since my '05 excursion is the same as the '04 superduty.
