Newbie here, I have searched and read various posts on the topic. I need to remove all brake lines (steel) master cylinder to ABS unit, ABS unit to the front brakes—plus the rail line to the rear in the axle. My truck is a 1998 XLT V8 AWD with ABS all stock. I need to change the lines because all lines were flagged on MD inspection. The truck has 231,000 miles on it and I got it from my dad for free. My question is, how difficult is this project for someone who has never worked on a car other then tune-ups and oil changes. I don't know how to bleed a brake system or how to jack-up a explorer without it falling on me. What tools and parts are need for the job? Example: What jack stand and how many do I need? I'm told 20" or higher for a truck? What pump jack to get? Will any work? Do I need to remove the front tires? etc. I have bought a flaring tool kit, small pipe cutter, 25ft of polymer coated 3/16 lines that are hand bendable. I know from researching on this site, to remove a line, then use it as a template for the new line. To also double flare the ends. I just don't want to screw things up once I start cutting things out. The local shop wants to charge $900 for the labor. They say it will take them 10 hrs. This would be my first big auto project. Would like to get it done over the weekend. I'm nervous about doing it and would appreciate an honest opinion.
