Thank's for the information. I have given up this project.
The calipers will be used as door stoppers or dust collectors.

My own fault, as I didn't do enough homework before I bought them, and bad luck that I painted them before I discovered the hose routing problems, so I Speedway won't accept a return.

The photo shows the common plumbing for them, but this interfere with the lower A arm at full turn and top end point of the suspension.
I know many would live with that, and if it was the flexible part of the hose that hit the A arm, I wouldn't mind either, but it's hard end that interfere.

Another possibility is to switch around the brake hose and the bleeder.
I prefer not as you have to loosen the caliper and turn it upside down when bleeding the brakes.
