IIRC the drum hose is a tad bit shorter than the disc hose.. and it is advised to replace it

No, you need longer ones for disk brakes. Here is a nice set of stainless steel ones.

Happy Re: brake lines re-use?

Thanx I said "f" it and bought them it seems like it will be a smoother transition if I have them anyway besides with the rotors I am going with I may need the stronger ones.

Donít worry about your wife, just tell her how much safer the car will be for her, your kids, your mother-in-law (chose one).
