Unhappy The right side brake hose was mislabled.

Since I was in the wheel well on a 15 year old car, I bought new OEM KIA MOBIS brake lines, with the correct part number on the sealed bags. Auto 7 re-labels the right front brake hose as 112-0030 and the left one 112-0035 (58731-3F000). The KIA part number label was intact on both bags. The left one was perfect, but the right one was not the perfect original design that I removed from the right side of the car. The brackets did not line up with the mounts on the right side.
It appears that I got stuck with the wrong hose. Apparently, through a minor stocking error, the right side hose was the wrong hose but in the correct labeled bag. The OEM bag had a small tear in the corner of the bag, where the wrong hose must have been inserted in the bag. This hose didn't fit on the left or the right.
I installed the new 0035 with no surprises. The left side hose is now a happy hose. I installed the odd one on the right side anyway, and it functions correctly, but I had to use a longer bolt and spacers on the first bracket, and the third bracket had to be tightened after the caliper was installed. I thought that there must have been some trick about routing the hoses that I had misunderstood, but the hose brackets were all upside down on the mislabeled 112-0030.
I received two different brands of hose from RockAuto today, and they are all the exact OEM hose configuration. The two different brands of hoses that I bought are both identical to the original one I replaced. Regardless or the label on the box, the new RockAuto hoses are all identical. The calipers clamp tight and release. I intend to install the right side hose this weekend, and maybe even the rear hoses, discs and pads. Stopping is more important to me than going.

This week my wife came home with a 2006 Highlander with the intent to replace our aging Blazer. She didn't notice it did not have 4 wheel drive, so it is not a direct replacement, but provides another choice in the family fleet. It appears her Amanti might be a hobby car this summer. Toyota's don't break very much, but I'm confident I will be assigned more mechanical duties.
