Extended brake hoses

I have a truck with a 4 inch lift and I just recently ruined a driver side brake hose because when I drove through some deep ruts over the corse of a few weeks my tires rubbed a hole in it because they dropped down and would only touch it when at the bottom of travel. I'm wondering if I can relocate the brake hoses to have a straighter angle to the caliber instead of going around the coil spring. Do they need to be mounted in the bracket or can I make new ones. I have a I have a welder. How well do they need to be secured?

You would be better going to an after market hose maker, and having longer, stainless steel braided hoses made for the truck
Maybe someone like bronco graveyard
