According to Rheem's installation Guide.
Liquid Line: (outdoor unit BELOW indoor coil)
On a 5 ton system with 150 feet of piping the maximum vertical separation is 31 feet. with 1/2" O.D. tubing.
Liquid Line: (outdoor unit ABOVE indoor coil)
You can have a vertical separation up to 120'
if using a TXV
Rheem recommends 1 1/8" on 150' of pipe.
Note 2: Oil traps in vertical runs are not required for any height up to 120 feet.
you need a trap @ the 4 foot rise then a trap @ the 20 foot rise and the every 8 feet there after..
