    I finally had a chance to look at mine for you... I'm in the same situation and have had no issues with the lines. There's more clearance on the driver's side than the passenger. The passenger line is close to the tire, but it's not touching.

    I just wanted to say 45es post (#36) on page 2 was super helpful. I'm using the horsepowersales-llc kit on my '74 (dana 30), while I was able to get both large spindle nuts and their washers installed properly, I couldn't get the retaining clip back on the stub axle. The instructions that came with the brake kit, some locking hub manufacturers, and random forum posts I've been reading indicate that it's not a big deal to run without it. I didn't feel great about that regardless, I'm sure it's there for a reason and I've heard some say it helps the spindle seal stay seated (although I don't know enough to verify). After switching the inner hub bearing from LM501311 to LM501314 things fit like they should and I can get the c clip on!

    I'm wondering if I should have the outside hub face milled a tiny bit though because the stub axle has almost no lateral play now, and my old drum setup had at least a little bit...

    I really enjoy seeing someone taking the challenge and getting very good results.
    You have done your research... you planned this out very well..!
    I am sure there were areas that had you sitting there scratching your head during the process.
    I went through this with my 1958 4whl. truck about a year ago.
    Great build...great results.... AND it all looks safe.
