Brake hose/Drop spindles questions 65 chevelle

Subject: 65 Chevelle w/ 2" drop spindles, and disc brake conversion

Problem: Pics in my photo album will show the cailper having a boss around the banjo bolt, forcing the hose to point forward. The hoses sent seem to want to go into the coil spring. Not to happy with it.

Had anyone seen a hose that has a hard metal line doing a 180 degree turn, then mounting into the normal mount bracket?

Hey jeff, i havent got anylinks for new lines or anything but i do got an idea that might work.
Is there anyway to turn the fitting thats on the frame mount around say 180 counter/clockwise with a wrench so that way when the hose decides it needs to bend it wont bend the direction of the coil. its bending in like this *( after turning it 180 it should bend the opposite way *) *Parenthesis being the brake line. Just an idea that popped in my head

I'm thinking I will have to relocate the whole hardline to go in front of the spindle, instead of behind. It sucks, because, I spend hours bending the new hardlines.

Problem solved. I called, and they said it was OK to grind the back side of the boss so I can reclock the banjo fitting to the rear.
