Fitted Stainless Brake Hoses!

Just finished installing the front hose kit but came up with a couple of issues !!
The original hoses have a square block where they fit onto the caliper where the new hoses have a circular banjo type fitting, This gives no support and I am concerned that over time the suspension movement might loosen the banjo fitting?

After initial install I thought that 1 hose was shorter than the other!! Noticeable difference in position of hose when checking clearance and lock to lock position of hose. Then I noticed that in one wheelwell the hose was mounted higher up in the wheelwell. The top hole of 2 that are for the original hose and has a threaded insert, fitted a rivnut into the lower hole and remounted the hose bracket now all equal. No pulling on hose even on full lock.
Bled up the brakes until fresh clean fluid came thru and now has a better pedal feel.

Present :2007 Grand Cherokee CRD.Fiat 500 lounge.
