good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist

making the lines is actually cheaper than purchasing the new lines from the dealer. there are a total of 6 steel lines and 4 rubber lines that are in the system. this is what we do as well to keep the price down.

you would have to call the dealer with your vin number as there are 2 or 3 options available but the cheapest I saw was around 450 for the set. it depends on your brake code.

there is nothing wrong with making your own lines to replace. a roll of line, flare end tool and ends are all you need. remove the lines one at a time and make the new and match to the old. it takes time but should not cost you more than 50-60 bucks for part including the fluid.

the labor for replacing the lines is 3 hours which the shop has included in there estimate but they sound like there estimate is a bit high considering the low cost of the parts.

will you attempt to do this yourself???
