Pre bent brake lines?

well... My truck has been quite the A**hole lately. first it was the vacuum pump. Then three days after that the alternator decided it didnt like the batteries any more. got that fixed. then last night i step out on the front porch to have a smoke and notice my exhaust hanging, No big deal right? I wanted to do exhaust anyway cause the P.O. did a serious hack job under there. So I pulled remaining pieces off so it didnt hurt anything while i collected parts. and heres the kicker! I jump in the thing this morning to come to work... fire it up... push the brake to put it in reverse and it goes right to the floor!!! hop under the truck and sure enough the brake line is rotted out right at the hose in the rear. so on to may question. sorry for the rant.

do you guys know where I can buy pre bent good quality OEM like brake line? or even good quality material to make my own? I have a lot of experience with the auto supermarket flavor brake line and here in michigan with the salt they only last a couple years. Maybe a Stainless one?

Thanks in advance all...

I was going to suggest get one at auto zone and bend it but it sounds like you have been thru that already.
My only guess would be the stealership. or full custom stainless. Maybe a hydraulic shop has something to help you out.

This is were I got my stainless. They were very exact and worked well. Worth not bending my own. I got my hoses off Rock Auto. I have an extra rear hose if you are intrested.

I have always bent my own lines from bulk tubing but this time a bought a stainless set from Inline tube I also bought a set of stainless trans cooler lines, I will be putting them on in the next few days. I wish Ford would build them with stainless lines from the start.
