Sway Bar Link too long

I just had a mechanic install new sway bar links and I noticed they are longer than needed. Do you think this is a problem? Could they end up hitting the brake lines? Picture attached.

That looks pretty typical to me. And since the upper and lower control arms will move at the same rate, there shouldn't be any condition where the anti-sway bar bolt will contact the brake hose.
