question for you guys that are doing the geo tracker brake conversion i am using the s10 brake flexible brake line and it looks to be to tight was wondering if anyone took off the bracket on top of the steering knuckle that the old S line connected to in order to get more line clearance 
thanks

I was in the same spot a few weeks ago and ended up removing them.  No issues so far.

I was thinking you were referring to the shield that sits on top of the knuckle.  That is the piece that I removed.  Kept the bracket on the axle tube like the picture above.

I forgot about that shield that bolted down and that was in the way for me. Bracket i'm using, I twisted to get the right angle.
