I have found that old hoses will swell or collapse and you really don't notice it because you can't see it happening so I would go with NEW lines of any kind. If you like the SS, do it. They won't swell! Check all of the metal lines too, you don't want to blow one when they are needed. I replaced the complete rear with new lines. The only old lines I have are from the fenderwell to the proportioning valve in front. PIECE OF MIND! ;)

Thanks. I'll probably go with all new SS hoses, unless you or someone recommends something even better that's not crazy more expensive.

As for the lines, I can probably run my own with some nicopp line I bought a while back and never used, with new fittings and a double flare tool. But the existing lines look ok.

That is EXACTLY what I did. A 25' coil will work perfect. Nice stuff to work with, I have been promoting it since I did my whole rear.
