Brake Questions

I have a 1976 Dj5 and the brakes needed servicing. I replaced the rear wheel cylinders because they were bad. I ran into some trouble on taking off the brake line though. Needless to say I have to replace the brake hardlines in the rear. I also need brake shoes. I can't seem to find anything for that year. Are the parts interchangeable and where is the best place to get them? Any other tips and pointers would be helpful. Thanks.

If you can't find wheel cylinders you might see if there is a rebuild kit. There should be a couple of yrs that are interchangeable with it bug I'm not for sure.

I actually found wheel cylinders, I can't find lines or shoes for the 1976. I've found them for other years though. I'm wondering if they are interchangeable.

I have actually bought straight lines and then use a tube bender to make them fit. Just be sure you buy them long enough. The shoes I'm not sure.
