Front Brake Lines

Im going to be installing my Superlift suspension soon and the kit comes with these brackets for the Front Brake lines. well i dont want to use the brackets.

I know the front lines are 13-1/4" long (found that on NAPA's Site)

Im searching summit and they say some SS brake lines are not DOT approved and they have all different fittings on them, not sure which ones to get.

Anyone know the fittings for the front brake lines or some front brake lines that will work on my truck that are 16"-18" long?

thanks
