Default 96 Cherokee Disconnect and Brake Line ?

Did a 3" RC Full Leaf lift and SYE Hack n Tap on my 96 Cherokee. Want to do disconnects now but want to make sure I order everything I need so I'm ready for the weekend.

Will I need to increase front brake line length and rear brake cable length ?

I found front disconnects from RC but did not see rear disconnects. Do you not disconnect the rear ? If so who makes disconnects for that ?

Most eliminate the rear sway bar permanently.

It's highly recommended, if not mandatory, to have extended brake hoses. I think most people just remove the rear swaybar.

The rear sway bar is entirely useless unless you tow or carry a lot of weight in the back or on the roof.

Thanks for the input. I ordered front disconnects plus front and rear stainless brake line extensions.

I am not running front or rear sway bar although I do not recommend running without a front one. You could make your stock brake lines longer by removing the bolt in the bracket and bending the line straight
