Ordering to replace the flexible brake lines and I wonder if the brake line retaining springs typically need replacement at the same time?

Yeah, anything can happen but have not worked with this type of connection in the past and didn't want to have to order again half way thru. Thanks.

Unless you are in the rust belt and they are disintegrating, reusing the original clips is fine.

Not much rust here - so I will clean one up and if all looks good will plan to reuse them all. Thanks!
