Actually, they are for the axles to the carrier. The ring gear is set by shifting the carrier left/right to the pinion. Thus the axles need to be shimmed to proper depth of the carrier.

Would love to see some pics.

Brake lines can be replaced for cheap. I’ve use ready-to-bend pre-flared tubes for both my disc swaps...about $10 for both lines. A cheap bending tool and some other round objects make it easy.
