Truck just went in for an annual safety and......

You guessed it they say that it needs some stuff. I'll keep this as short as possible but will say some of the issues he mention was from them at last years inspection which I made clear. This shop is also the one in town I would trust most (I say that loosely) because my dad's buddy works there. I plan to do the work myself so they arent making money off me anyway. Here goes the list...
Right sway bar end link
Right front axle boot
Right clearance marker buld(I'm pretty sure it's the socket since I've replaced the bulb with no result before)
And the big one the brake lines need to be mounted better somehow. I have the Cognito 4" ntbd kit and they mounted the lines in the factory spot last year which is why they rubbed through and I replaced them since then. Now they are where they out them last time but are improper they say. So they want them bolted on both ends somehow. And not secured with HD zip ties and whatnot which is somewhat understandable. I also have kryptonite ucas so does anyone ha e any suggestions for this one? Should I drill a hole through the control arm edge and put a bolt through it and use a hose clamp and call it good? Or does anyone have another suggestion?

Thanks for any help in advance...

Also are there extended front brake lines for these trucks? Google didnt show me any. Cant remember but pretty sure the end links are longer than stock with the kit too so gona ha eto find some to order asap now I guess

Guess I'll just weld tabs to the control arms that I can bolt a hose clamp to the brake lines and that should be plenty good imo.

Now to start looking for a place to source parts hopefully all from the same place...
