    The flaren ot on the bottom of the front brake line will unscrew half way, then you turn it one more and it popes up...then back down, so I can't screw the flare nut out, but I can still tighten it back up.

    Are you using flare nut wrenches? I'm not sure I understand what you are talking about.
