Brake line extensions for lift?

I put on my Rough Country 2.5" Spacer lift this weekend and I could not quite figure out how I was supposed to put on the brake line extensions for the front. I slowly bent the rear steel lines to accept the extended brackets. For the fronts, I did not want to bend them so much. I just didn't feel comfortable doing it. My question is this: what could happen by not doing this? I turned the wheel side-to-side and it never even came close to running out of rubber line. Is it ok to just slowly bend down the brake line to make the bracket work? Thanks in advance.
Oh, and the lift is awesome looking!

It may be fine for side to side, but have you considered up and down?

I considered the vertical aspect of it, but didn't know if anyone else had come across this issue. I think I am going to drill a hole in the bracket to mount the brake lines on that are not so far down.
