    I am at my wits end with these rear brake lines, I can't break them free of the block so i can install the steel braided extended one. Are there new brakes lines as well that I can buy? should I just rip out the old lines from drum to drum and install new lines?
    Thanks

    You can get the brake lines that go to the block from the drum for around $3 each from Napa or Autozone. I would suggest just replacing them.

    Dealt with the same thing. I ended up replacing all the lines as well as the rear wheel cylinders. It was much easier to rip the old rusted to garbage lines off, than to fight it.
