If at all possible, I like running the ones I do through the axis line created by the ball joint.

That way the line moves less, and doesn't make the line have to fold onto itself in order to take up or give out slack...I've also found that going through the axis line keeps the line out of contact with rims and tires upon turning.

I don't like to put the 90 degree fitting pointing up, as in this direction, during steering,the hose rotates in the same direction as the threads on the fitting. Most stock lines are held from rotating by the shape of the hole in the mounting tab. Aftermarket lines have no such provision.

Also, you want to make sure you have full suspension travel with no tightening of the lines, you don't want to stretch the line and have it break at full steering and suspension travel.

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
