allright I got 4 inch lift springs for my 76 fj40. I got a couple of Q's

1) what length/ angle should I run for shackles
2) what degree shims should I run (6?) what kind, and where to get them, do they need to be welded?
3) do i really have to extend my brake lines, or can i just relocate them.
4) I dont need to lenghthen my drive shafts do I?
5) do I need a drop pitman arm (stock steering) 76 fj40

Any other pointers would be appreciated 8)

I run 1" over stock to let the springs flatten on compression
2) what degree shims should I run (6?)  what kind, and where to get them, do  they need to be welded?
I didn't use any, bds springs have the caster built in
3) do i really have to extend my brake lines, or can  i just relocate them.
Run longer ones
4) I dont need to lenghthen my drive shafts do I?
Negative
5) do I need a drop pitman arm  (stock steering) 76 fj40
Negative
