Still Want Pre-Bent Brake Line For Suburbans

I've checked quite a few places for pre-bent line for my 93 Suburban. Anyone else have an idea? I don't want a how bunch of 5-foot sections spliced together, and the local shop wants about $600 to make line and put it in for me.

Where can you buy a roll of brakeline? I've never seen it.
The point of the pre-bent stuff is that it matches the original perfectly. I've yet to see any installation job that looks as good as factory.

I went through this same shat awhile back when I replaced some brake lines. I ended up using the 5ft sections from Autozone, the stuff they sold me bent so easy without a bender. Once it is on you cannot see that it is sectioned and worked great........................

Every one that I did in the shop turned out great. The unions were covered by the gas tank and tucked up into the frame in the original clips. Take your time and it will look good.

The hardest part is flareing the line properly.
