Brake hose interference

Hello,
I've put new brake hoses in a friend's '75 Cherokee. The vehicle is all stock and the hoses rub against the shock absorbers, which can be a problem over time.

Before I "make things fit", does anything here look wrong?

Thanks.

should not be a problem but if you are worried, find a piece of rubber hose and some zip ties and wrap the hose where it rubs on shock.

Somehow I think you should rotate the hose on the frame bracket so it does not bend toward the shock. Maybe too simple, but I think you can do that.

The hose looks like it has a twist In it. Take it off the banjo bolt, let it relax and reinstall.

Ditto what Deep J20 said. The ribs along the flexible line are an indication of a twist, they should not spiral around the brake line.

I've seen people use small springs from a general purpose spring kit to pull the brake line away from any moving parts. Works pretty well.

Thank you guys. I rotated the hoses 90 deg on the caliper side and everything is perfect now.
