Meh, not necessissarily... You need to just inspect the brake line as it goes down the rail. If it appears the line was just rubbing in this area, then replacing just the bad section should be fine... If the entire things looks pitted and rusted, then you may want to look into swaping out the entire line. It really isn't as hard as you would think.
Regardless of whether you are replacing the entire thing, or just the section... I would check out a few YouTube videos for how to "single flair" and "double flair" lines... You can rent a "flairing tool" from advance/autozone, and after a few tries, you will be a master at it.
Line benders are about $5 or less... Definitely don't want to bend by hand, you WILL
put a crimp in the line.
You got this!
