Brake Problem! Help!

I recently had a hub assembly go out on me at about 60 mph with no warning signs. I had to replace both calipers, pads, and pad holding brackets along with 1 cv axle and both hub assemblies and inner tie rod ends. I now notice that with the new calipers, purchased from advance auto parts, the lines seem to stretch badly at full lock. I figure it may be a due to a change in placement of where the line bolts to the caliper. It locks up the outside tire at full lock. I currently have the bracket where the line meets to the frame loosened to relieve stress on the lines. Has anyone else encountered this problem or know a fix for it????????????

I do have my bars cranked up but it never has been an issue over the past 2 years so im not sure why it is now.
