i was in the same position i didn't do it my self and i had none of the right tools and my dad didn't want to help so i just tok it to a local shop i got the tomken SS breakliness the really long ones just in case i need them later. i know this is a pretty simple job your best bet would probably be to find someone oyu know and trust to show you how to do it that way you can do it the next time

Get some braided stainless steel lines and spray the hell out of the old ones with PB Blaster for a day or so. The old lines should come right out...if not, carefully heat 'em up a little. Did both of mine in about 15 min. at Red Ridge

Yep, gotta bleed 'em after you finish installing the new lines. If you have someone to help, it's a piece of cake. If not, go to Pep Boys and get a set of speed bleeders.....you can do it alone with them
