i have this problem bad!! i didn't read this and i bleed the hole brake system today and all i have to do is trip the bump stop off. Fuck man!! But I'm glad i read this because i was going to have my master cylinder replaced on thursday. SO GLAD I don't have too!!!

i have this issue. Going to have to bump stop removed then i hear it fix's the issue. I was at napa today looking at 30 different brake lines to extend them but i just ended up bending the stock metal piece thats shaped like a "L" thats on the caliper strait so i gained about over a inch of brake line and i bleed the hole brake system to. Didn't even know this was a issue when doing spindle lifts.

ok fixed the issue with the brakes going out at full lock. i know i have fabtech but Im posting it in here because its spindle lift related. I looked it up last night and its a big issue with these spindle lifts. So i thought i share how to fix the brakes going out problem at full lock.

yes they are made a tad diff. But they are 3.5 lift not 3inch like the douchtech spindles The caliper sits a little lower. And at full lock they hit the original bump stop.
