caliper replacment

I went to replace my rotors calipers and pads today on my 90 wrangler and I got my driver side all torn apart. I took the caliper off pulled the old rotor off, and then I disconnected the brake line by loosening the banjo bolt. I then went to hook the line up to the new caliper and noticed that when I lined up the flat of the bottom of the brake line to the flat of the caliper that the brake line didnt apper to be in the same position as when I took it off. So I looked at the passenger side and it appears to have a different line setup. I did notice that when I removed the banjo bolt there were three copper washers on it. The only thing I can think of is that the previous owner must have cobbled it together. Should I just get the correct line or would it work to just get three new copper washers to build it up enough so I dont have to line the flats up?

It actually require one copper crush washer on each side of the banjo fitting. You can get new ones at any parts house. That may be all that is wrong.

As mentioned above it could be time for some new brake hoses.
