Getting my 2015 ready to swap in a m226. I have a set of Deaver leaf springs I will be swapping in also. I was curious if anyone out there is using deavers on their trucks and what length brakelines are you using? Also I cant find the part number for the titan ABS sensors that people use during their m226 swap? Are they all the same or are there specific ones?

Thanks in advance
Carl

How much does your Deavers raise the truck?
I have run two sets of Deavers and 4” extended lines worked for both. I bought lines made by Goodridge. Should work for you but I made new steel lines and re routed them. You can see the new hardlines on the upper bar��
How is your tribute to Nissan race truck coming along?Curious as to your control arm design.

Just looked at the first photo. Parts still on the truck are the shackles and they may go. Everything else has been changed.

Truck is coming along. Did a level kit in the front for now. Removed the stock bumper and got a prerunner bumper for it. Got a set of Mickey Thompson 285 / 75/16 tires on it. Built a light bar that mounted to my utilitrak that will have a forward 50" light bar and a ruff stuff rear facing bar with brake lights and turnsignals in it. Got my m226 and getting it ready for the swap.

Any idea what length shocks I should look for? I am planning on keeping them in the stock location for now. I was hoping for remote res shocks for it.

To hard to determine by guessing.
The best way is to take apart your springs and just use your main spring to take measurements.
You need to know the distance right where it is just going negative( collapsed)and fully extended. Put a scissors jack between the spring and the frame to be sure it is fully extended.
You also need to a spacer to represent the total thickness of the spring pack.
Once you know this , that will determine the length of the shock. Remember the angle the shock is mounted will affect the length. More angle , the shock can be shorter but won’t be as effective.
