Default stainless steel brake hoses?

So I got some of these to replace my sketchy-looking I believe OEM brake hoses, and found that they are all long. I was warned about this, and the axle to wheel hoses aren't bad, I'm fine with them, but the body to front axle hose, which was 7" stock, is 16" long . The OEM body to rear axle hose is 14" with the stainless one being 16" so I'm sure that one will be okay, but even though it's an aftermarket kit I would think that the front would be kinda close ? Anybody else install stainless steel hoses (I got these from SOR) and run into the same problem? I horseshoed mine over by the diff to keep it away from the tire, but I'm going to call those guys tomorrow and try to get the skinny on it.
