extended RUSSELL brake line HELP!

I have some new russell front brake lines to account for my suspension lift , however I'm not sure how they install. I'm worried about the alignment of the hole in the brake line (for fluid) with the hole in the screw(for fluid). The factory brake line screw uses a washer on the mounting block of the brake line and if you were to leave it out it would change the alignment of the holes in the screw and the brake line. I can't tell whether to reuse the washer with the new line. The factory washers also seem to be like a gasket with the mounting block on the line machined for it. There is space around the screw after it's in the hole. So I begin to conclude that it doesn't matter and I don't have to reuse the washer. Also the mounting block on the new brake lines are slightly thicker than on the old lines. Anybody install these before and know the whether to use the washer or not ?

I would think you need the washer still. Reuse them or take them down to the local NAPA store and get a replacement.

They are copper sealing washers. You need to get new ones. One on each side of the block.
