Tips for replacing rear rubber brake line?

I've done SS lines on I'm not sure how many cars but the rear rubber brake line that goes from the center of the car to the rear end housing is being a PITA. Am I missing something? I'm replacing the pinion seal as well because there's tons of oil and grease complicating what I can see as well.

Can't find any specific install articles, probably because it's generally really straight forward. 92 fox if it matters.

What's the issue, getting the fitting lose (sorry I don't own a Mustang)? If that's the case, can you cut the line and use a 6 point socket?

Where are you having your issue?

I've swapped that out with the MM stainless hose, and don't recall it giving me much trouble really. Pretty straightforward
