When replacing your brake lines, the replacement brake hose assembly does not need to look exactly the same as the original brake line, but make sure that the brake lines (especially the new brake hose fittings) will fit the surrounding area where they will be installed. Sometimes the brake hose fitting can interfere with another part of your brakes. Pay attention to any tight spots when removing your brake lines and communicate any restrictions to the vendor who will be fabricating your replacement brake lines.
