Rear Brake Lines (chafing)

Anyone else noticed their rear brake lines chafing against the rear lower control arms? They run through a space in the lower control arm-by design- and chafe. They have a protective water-resistant wrap around that section that is already worn down on my car (only three years of chafing). I am probably going to find some similar material (hopefully something stronger than the stock) and wrap that little section.

Has anyone else tried to combat the problem? I didn't like seeing the wear in the plastic tube/line cover from where it had been rubbing up against the rear LCA. Even in the event where it is a wire line, they have a tendency of rusting and then breaking due to the oxidation from water.
