Thatís correct. The ABS controller plus the lines connected to the
controller. They come as a set so you have to replace all of them. I
think there are a total of 6 lines. I saved the lines they replaced
but couldnít tell if there is a difference in the bends.

Iíve checked the clearence between the rad hose and the lines and itís
now over and inch. That leads me to believe that the bends were
changed somewhere down the road. BTW the labor charge was over $500.
