The Red 180 dec fitting is connected to the caliper as per hose #9.

I prefer not as you have to loosen the caliper and turn it upside down when bleeding the brakes.
Can you swap calipers side to side? That would keep your bleeders on top...

The calipers are not left/right spesific.
Bleeder and inlet ports are both 1/8 NTP

That could been a neat solution, yes.
Unfortunately there aren't any 7/16 banjos with side bend.
But drilling out the 1/8 NTP inlet port to something else, might be a good idea.

It appears that you have a full aftermarket suspension , does it incorporate steering stops that limit the turning radius ? Could be that limiting the turn could provide the clearance you need , if its within reason ....
BTW Russell performance has all sorts of different banjo fittings ...

I see ! OK , how about drilling our the caliper and tap to 1/2"-20 , then use a reducer bushing to get to 3/8or 10mm. With the sealers that are available today , ID think that would be doable , I've seen those work on heavy equipment fittings where the hydraulic pressures are way above a brake system ....
Course I've welded hydraulic supply lines too .....��
