A quick check of a typical vendor (worldpac, etc.) shows rear lines 
about $15 each, specs are (10x1x215mm).  Might be something the local 
shops carry.  Also note that if you mess up the short line to the 
rubber hose, you can buy pre-made lengths of bendable metal line at 
most parts shops (like NAPA and Autozone) for a couple dollars each 
(perhaps $3).

Or if they have 155K miles on them. Should have added all lines 12 
months old.
