Got the front braided lines installed no problem. However, the factory nuts on the rear lines won't budge. Line wrench doesn't help, vice grips are destroying the nut. Don't want to go much further to avoid destroying the hard line b/c that would be costly. Any suggestions how to bust these loose?[wrench]

You're using an 11mm line wrench?
Before you begun, was the nut messed up at all?

yup, correct line wrench. tried on rear driver side on one nut and it began to strip, so I stopped. Then I tried the other one same side, same thing. Only one nut on pass side moves, the other three are stuck. What could I use? Soak on sea foam, dry em off and try some heat?
