    Here is the only position that seems to fit right but it doesn't look right?

    I would twist it then reconnect to get it curled and off the tire.

    Hmmm...they look like they should be positioned so the line goes back towards the truck, not towards the front. You probably already tried that though. How were the old lines routed? What does the old fitting at the caliper look like?

    I was planning on it, but am still insure if this is the correct way they should be connected. It just seems like I lose a lot of length with them hooked up this way.

    looks pretty close to mine, you can get springs from the hardware store to keep them off the tire

    Is it supposed too? I don't know how they could go on to have the bleeder facing up?? I am pretty sure I have them on the correct sides:(
