Wanting to change all or most of steel brake lines because they are not looking too good.Have a question about the front ones in particular.The one that is coming from the from the T under the master cylinder that goes to the rear into a joiner has a bunch of S curves on it before it connects into the joiner.Are these a must or can i just use straight line without all of these S curves/bends?

Just wondering if you ever found an answer to your question? I too am redoing brake lines on my 2003 and it would make life a lot easier not to bend those S curves and just run a straight line.

I don't know the exact area you're talking about but I wouldn't deviate far from the oem lines. The curves and loops in brake lines are generally there for a reason. Whether its to attenuate vibration or absorb movement between components of the vehicle.

If Toyota could have made it less expensive by running straight lines they would have jumped on the opportunity.
