so, Did my harmonic balancer replace, and putting my steering rack back in I must have moved the lines coming from the pressure modulator to the rear calipers too far, because one of them is leaking now. Is it necessary to replace the whole line, or can I splice a short piece in? Anyone up on this?

I wouldn't try and repair a brake line. Lines are relatively inexpensive and why risk you life on a splice to save a few bucks.. Just my 2¢

are the lines sold preformed? Or do I need to buy a roll of line and bend it into shape?

Remember to slide the fittings on B4 ya flare the line :spanked:
Thay do have unions to join the pre assembled lines together if ya cant get the length ya need.

I think making up a new line is imposable, many bends, hard to snake into place, runs from the pressure modulator to a rear caliper. Damaged it sliding the rack and pinion assembly into place .
