    Okay so my 14FF had the goofy load sensing brake setup in the rear. The hard lines seem way too long but I cant seem to get one of the lines out of the wheel cylinder. I dont want to round it off anymore so yall got any ideas?

    Yep those wrenches work a charm when working on lines. You can get a cheap set of them just about anywhere

    Dont waste your cash on cheap ones--I bought a tiwan set of flare wrenches,they suck--they spring open and strip the fittings every time.I'd go with craftsman if your on a budget,or snap-on if your wallet is full.Cheap tools arent alays th bargain they appear to be--my cheapness cost me another half hour cutting the lines and re-flaring them!. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
