Exclamation brake lines on 87 YJ

hey everyone, I have a 87 YJ and I need to replace the brake lines.
I need to know if I can buy pre bent lines, or if i can buy line and bend it myself.

The lines i need to replace are the rear lines from the master cylinder to the hoses and from the hose to the rear wheels.

Anyone know a website???

Any input is great thanks.

i always make my own, you can buy it prebent i think. or you can buy straight sections w/ flares and fittings on them you have to bend. or what i do is buy the bulk line and fittings, and bend and flare it myself. doesn't really matter how ya do it as long as you do it. keep lines away from moving parts and hot parts obviously.

Yea I would try to do it yourself. You just need the parts and a double flaring tool set. And I would use union fitting not compression if you have to connect 2 lines. You can just bend the lines gently by hand for the most part. If you have 2 buy a bender it will prob. cost around $10. I work in a shop and that is how we do it so it is perfectly safe and practical.
