    We use fuel line or oil rated line for the diffs. We highly suggest replacing all the line and not using extensions. They can break and ruin a trip. What other breathers are you extending?

    How are your ball joints? May I also ask if you are measuring toe? If so, is it from the front of the tire? The larger the tire, the farther away from the axle and the less actual toe in you have.
