    I have a 1990 f450 superduty with 4 wheel disc brakes. The rear rubber flex lines are in great shape but the steel lines are looking a little rusty. I removed the rear lines and flex lines in one piece figuring I would separate the two once in the shop. I discovered the flex hoses and steel line are one piece (don't come apart) I was planning on using this truck for snow plowing and usually change most steel brake lines every year due to salt eating away at them. Is there a way that I can possibly get a set of lines and hoses that come apart so I don't need to replace the flex hoses as well every year. I have scoured the net looking but actually can't even find out any info on rear brake lines at all. Any comments welcome :)

    Ford uses a banjo fitting at the caliper, not as simple as changing to a different line setup...
