Has anyone rerouted the front right brake line? Instead of running in through the bumper and all the way back around? Sorry I meant to put right

I've seen it done by going under the master, back to the firewall, over the motor, down by the battery and then along the frame to where it currently resides.

I've seen it done by taking a flex line down the driver upper arm like the rear is done, and then to a T like the rear has and then to both calipers.

I cannot for the life of me understand either version or the reasons for doing it that way.

Okay thanks, I basically just ran it the same way but instead of going all the way into the bumper, I put it behind the sway bar.

The factory is going to cover their butt and support the brake hard line about every 18" or so to stop vibration from cracking it. I might go a little more than that, but not much.
