Spindle Lift done.Now brake problem

Hey guys. I just installed a 3inch spindle lift .... Love it. But i think i have a brake hose length issue...Brake pedal is fine when im going straight but when i turn my wheels all the way the brake pedal goes much lower when i come back straight its fine.I relocated the brackets so that they have more play but still i think they are to short...

If anyone can help me what to do i would appreciate it!

thanks guys!

The guy who sold them to me said that they are made in California by Doetsch . And the abs fits like a glove, no adjustment needed.

Pic of the result... need to clean it now.
