Ouch, I'm not sure about the 96s but the 97s had braided stainless steel flex sections that allowed the lines to be in a postion that prevent the fluid from boiling over due to the location close to the exhaust.
The dealer should have the lines pre-bent and with flex piece.

Thanks after looking at it today I did find pieces of the old brake line it was flex line I found them in the back on the floor but they are ruined, the kid took all the lines off the vehicle, front and back, the only good thing is he got the old lines off at each point without destorying anything else, on the abs unit it has four locations for four lines do the front lines go to the first two on the left of the abs unit and the back two, the last two on the right or vic versa, thanks

Thank You, the image is a big help, I surely appreciate all your help maybe I can get this vehicle done now that I see how I am suppose to connect the lines, I only paid 150.00 for the van and it runs and looks great, so its worth fixing, has double sliding doors and its loaded.I was afraid I was going to wind up putting 1000 bucks in it.I thank you again very much. You"ve been a great help, John

Glad it works for you, looks pretty rough to me. I couldn't get inder the other van today, too wet. It you need me to, I will, let me know. If I would have seen "have donated", I probably would have guilted myself into it. Glad we could save you some $$$.
