need helping taking out rear end (dana 35)

So I am in the prosess of taking out my rear end because the bolts holding my rough country 2 inch spacer broke and I need to get the old ones out. My question is how the hell do I take off the parking brake cable as well as the brake lines?!? The brake lines seem to go to a spliter that is part of the rear end with what looks like a high presser fitting on it. I am sure if I spent sometime searching I could find the answers but this is my daily driver and I need to fix this asap. Any help would be great. Thanks

e-brake cables are released from inside of the vehicle at the bottom of the e-brake lever. I had to remove my center console to gain access to them. Then you have to pull up the rear seat cushion and fold back the carpet to get to the retainers that hold them to the floor board.
