Russ' PM saved me from a certain brake system rupture.
Its what makes these sites so valuable..and in this case preventing a pending disaster. So glad you took the time to observe your own vehicle.

Hopefully other Superspring owners will take note and make any necessary alterations.

I will forward to Supersprings and ask for their input.

well, I'd peg that brake line exposure as an INSTALLER problem, not an inherent problem with the supersprings.


on my Tacoma, the brake lines went nowhere near the Ride Rite airbags I had installed...



(the brake lines you can see going under the leaf springs were in fact secured there with a clamp, and do NOT contact the U bolt nuts that hold the ride-rites in place)

I did more research this morning. It turns out that the cut line is the parking brake cable casing and not the hydraulic brake line, as I originally feared. I put a clamp around the cut section. The parking brake cable slides smoothly, so I think I am good to go.

Anyone considering an airbag system, consider PAC Brake. I just purchased their air suspension system ( HP 10128...for 2019 Tundra). $100 + cheaper than Firestone and material seemingly more commercial like.
