Swapping axles but have some questions.

Hey guys I am part way done my swap I am putting in a 8.8 with a 3.73 and a L/S.

I don't really see an easy way to disconnect the break lines or how the E break comes off. Any tips?
Also I am having a hell of a time undoing the bolts for the shocks. What do you recommend?

You just squish the lock piece and push it through the bracket and pull it through.

As for the shock bolts be a man. They come out its just a bolt, nothing special.

driver side theres a cable that you push and slide out. shock, be a man. brakes you can undo the lines at the back of the brakes, or pull the axle shafts and pull the drums in one piece.
