How have y'all mounted your front extended brake lines?

My credo
built her in a storage unit
i have the James Duff kit that ive had on for a while now (believe its for 4-6in, i have 4in lift) i have mine routed around the coil behind the sway bar, i got them to stay like this by zip tying them to the coil and sway bar for a month or so. Ive had them like this for a while but I dont like the routing and they have been knicked in action several times and have covered them in 1/4in wire loom since. (picture is hard to see but driver side is easier to tell what ive done) Was hoping to see if anyone had come up with a good solution as i dont believe the oem lines have anything keeping them in place except for the hard portion. maybe later model trucks had brake line mounting spots that i could take advantage of?

My Bronco II has it zip tied to the spring. I'm not fond of it either.

I remember seeing @tw205 solution to this. Might have been over on the Bronco Corral. Maybe he can share it here?

The extended brake line I bought came with mounts. I first put them on the factory mounts but they stuck out horizontally. Factory lines have a hard bend and point down. I put on the mounts that came with the brake lines and pointed them down. I’ve just started driving this truck a little so don’t have any feedback on and rubs on nicks.

My "factory" lines came with a clip in the middle that I assumed was meant to attach to the coil spring. It looks something like this:


Of course it doesn't fit around the spring...

I used the '95 suburban brake lines but I just zip tied them to a center coil on the springs, been like that for like 12 years now and haven't had any issues
