    The tacoma brake lines have very soft, aluminium like, nuts. The ideal tool to use on them is a Flare nut wrench. It will help reduce the chances of stripping the bolt head.

    I F-ed up one of my rear brake threads, even with the tool it will be a hard bolt to loosen.
    I do recommend buying a quality 10mm flare nut wrench because the tolerances on the Harbor Freight wrench will fit loose and strip the thread
