Bending brake lines

I am replacing the brake lines in my 78 Olds from the master to the distribution block. Right after exiting the master they have curls in the line. do these need to be there or can I just go straight to the dist. block?
Thanks .

You want the coils in the line - it helps absorb vibration in the line while driving.

You don't need quite as many as the factory has, but you need some. The master cylinder mounts to the body, the rest of the lines to the frame. Since the body mounts to the frame on rubber bushings, there is flex there all the time.
