Rear Drum Hard Line Replacement?

The cylinder in one of my rear drums is leaking pretty bad, and taking the lines off after soaking with PB overnite resulted in twisting the hard line. The fitting was so rusted that it wouldn't just spin on the hard line.

Is there a direct replacement or is the make and bend your own the only solution?

My guess is make your own if you have a good flaring tool, probably some you tube videos on how to do a double flare and bend the steel lines so not to kink them. Toyota may have a replacement, if it isn't bent up from shipping.

After closer inspection of the hard line...I realized there is a rubber coating on the hard line, and inside that is a clear plastic sleeve. It was the clear plastic sleeve that was turning making me thing the whole hard line was crimped.

I ended up just keeping my hard line.
