Cant undo brake line..

trying to undo rear center brake line as its the last thing i need to do to get my diff out and it wont budge. tried pipe spanner, no luck. tried ''snap on'' pipe spanner, always has worked for me before, no luck. tried vice grips, no luck. now i don't want to keep trying coz its starting to **** it. does anyone know of a spray or something to help brake the seal ?? or have any ideas on how to get the ****er undone.. need it out asap

Since you've ****ed the nut I would cut it off and get a new line made up. It'll only cost you about $15.

can you undo the line at the t piece on the diff housing where it splits off to left and right? leave the rubber flex line in there.

soak it with crc clamp some vice grips on hell tight get a hammer and hit around the nut to shock it while loading it up to undo it

and like corran said just replace the small hose im pretty sure it has a brake in the line somewhere so it can be interchangable
