Should I replace brake lines?

At 231k on the chassis of my E that has spent it's whole life in NE. I'm about to change out my calipers, rotors and pads, and am wondering if I should just go ahead and change my brake lines going to the calipers while I am at it? Brakes will obviously need to bled anyway so why not?

Since you'll already be "in there", IMHO YES!! replace the lines as well. Calipers may "only" need a rebuild, but it might be easier to buy rebuilt ones (depending on your DIY level). Because of its location (and mileage), you will definitely benefit in the long run by doing them now (before a failure). Good luck!!

Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.

When I did the brakes the last time, I noticed that the calipers were really corroded. Might as well spend the extra $ 50 on the lines while I am at it.
Thanks for the input!
