Default Brake Line Connection to Caliper

Im in the middle of my brake swap 05lgt > 98lgt. Includes Front: rotors, calipers, pads. I installed everything on it already but im stuck with one problem: Moving the brake line from the old caliper connection to the new one. The old one is kind of corroded, how can i free it up to move to the new caliper? (it is soaked in WD40 right now)

are you talking about the hose with a banjo connection that seals to the caliper?

This is what it looks like:

(Not my brake setup btw)



Like that part where the hose connects to the caliper is kinda of old and stuck. I dont know how to remove it to the new caliper without breaking anything.

yeah that one can be a pain. as i recall, i just used a ratchet with a short extension, and a rubber mallet to pop it loose. just take your time and don't forcee it, you should do okay.
