You can get lengths up to about 5 feet at your local parts store. They come flared with fittings and everything. I have had to replace a few and had no problems bending it up nice. I bought a bending tool for 5 bux. Cheap, and you can bend them however you like and they come out looking nice.

It depends how much you want to replace how it is bent. If you are going to replace all of them or the ones with a complicated bent like around the firewall I would go to the dealer as I heard they are prebent. This would save alot of hassel. If it is a simple replacement take an old peice to the parts store and just buy some straight lines and bend them yourself.

I just replaced half of the hard lines on my 4runner and would if I knew the dealer had prebent ones I would have bought hem from them.

i replaced the hard line on the driver's side, ordered the part over the phone from the dealer,got it home, nowhere close to right. went back and they said that was the only one they could order, so they ordered another one, got it home, still not close, but close enough i was able to bend it to fit, looks awful but it works, so if you go to the dealer, make sure you crawl under the truck before you leave

you just had a bad parts guy. :flipoff2: Brake lines are one of the hardest things to look up. The pictures on the EPC are terrible.
