One thing about stainless braided hoses which you might already know...do not let them rub on anything as they act like a saw!  I have always covered my stainless braided brake hoses with shrink wrap as a measure to help prevent them from rubbing on suspension components.  If you can run your suspension through full articulation and the hoses don't come close to anything, then you are probably fine.  Just and FYI in case your hoses hang in a manner that might make them susceptible to damaging surrounding components.

The aftermarket control arms came with a good mounting point for brake lines. Itís better than the factory point, for my application. Right now the brake lines hang pretty well... but preventing chaffing is definitely a consideration. Itís surely something to be conscious of.
