Question: Rear brake line flare type

Hi folks,

I have spent the day trying to get a definite answer regarding the flares I need to make for the hard lines running from the rear wheel cylinders to the interface with the rubber lines that transit from the rear axle to the chassis. The info I have found so far but am not sure of is that all the flares on the hard lines throughout the van are double flares, except for where the braided lines connect to the ABS unit. I understand that those are bubble flares. Can someone offer me some guidance?? I have both lines out and they are sitting on my bench, ready to be duplicated using "Poly Armor". I brought one of the fitting over to Napa and picked up an even dozen new connectors. I am planning of replacing all the lines but am just starting with the above 2 mentioned lines.
