Yes, otherwise you will have to splice in pieces in 48" lengths or shorter.

I did it without removing the body from the frame. I used a coat hanger and some duct tape. Wrapped the coat hanger around the brake line and taped it. then fished the coat hanger through the frame and carefully pulled the brake line through. All the books said it couldn't be done, but....
