they can be rerouted to gain some length out of them. I rerouted mine and they are fine for my RK 2.5" lift and extended brake lines.

Mine (2.5" lift) are also rerouted, but very tight under full droop. I am looking into crown extended lines, also local hydraulic shops are reportedly able to fab up longer stainless hose types.

I am a troll. Do not take my advice. It isn't going to help.

If you pull the slack on the rubber grommets that hold the front ones in you can gain a couple inches. On the rear, I've soldered extra wire and have them routed and ziptied directly to the extended brake lines. All good.
