Lines shrink ?

They shrink only if twisted from what I know.

they shrink as dirty get inside the fibers. AFAIK, it's more observed on the steering lines as they do not work under load and leave more "space" for the dirty penetrate in the fibers.

North made front lines slightly longer (2cm) in 2020 but after 2021 they're supposed to be equal

On this thread it's suggested to wash the lines with warm water and stretch them again. Let's see if it works, otherwise I'll adjust with pigtails.
