I have an A body 8 3/4, but this is an issue nobody ever mentions. I have super stock springs, and I used long shocks, so you need a longer brake hose. You don't want the brake hose acting as a limiter or pulling apart. I found a Wagner BH 50396 which is 3-4 inches longer than stock, and has the same ends. I often wondered if the guys who thought their shocks were topping out, checked the brake hoses at full extension.
Here is a pic of the brake hose I posted the part number for. It has a female fitting on the bracket end with the proper lock ring groove and a male fitting on the end that fits into the tee. It is 21 inches long tip to tip. Hope this helps.
I don't know what the part number is, but I went with one for an '86 Ram 4 X 4 so I knew it would be more than long enogh when the suspension expanded at launch. But that one that gkcuda shows should leave you a bunch extra since it looks even longer than the one for a 4 X 4.
