Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Rear springs are part of a strut assy, get a quick strut fom o'reilleys or az. it has the spring, strut, mount, all new and ready to pop in, otherwise you will need to tear the strut down and will need special tools. it is also a little risky, springs can fly pretty good when they slide out of compressors

SOURCE: 1993 rear brake cylinder removal
you have to take the springs away from the ends of the cylinder and it take a good hit with a hammer to loosen it and it will fall out... but just fyi, put the OTHER side on too!!! it will leak tomorrow since you are replacing this one today...guarantee!

Which brake line are you talking about?. The metal steel ones,or the rubber ones. Doesn't matter. If you are buying the rubber ones, then just ask for them by year and model of truck.
If you are working with the steel ones, they are either going to be 5/16 or 1/4 depending which line it is. the 5/16 ones are usually attached to the master cylinder or the ABS unit. The fittings sometimes if you don't find the right one have to be re used, in which case you will need to flare the tubing. (Double Flare) Or you can go to the dealer, pay an arm and a leg, but you don't have to flare the tubing, which takes the fun out of the job.

Your best bet is to get the line at an auto parts store. The line would be correct in size and bent correctly for easy installation with fittings included. That takes all the worry about building your own line.
Hope this helps... Good luck!
