'94 E500 installing Brembo front brakes

OK guys -- need help regarding removing old MB front brake flex rubber lines @ the bracket welded to top spring perch. Have used plenty of liquid wrench nut juice, new craftsman brake wrenches (trying not to round off the 11 mm nut), brusted knuckels, etc. Anyone got a method short of removing the the front strut completely to gain unobstructed access ??
Thanks,
TPK
PS Anyone done a Brembo big front brake upgrade on the '94 E500? Would appreciate any comments. Thanks again.

Arthur,
Yes replaces used Brembo SS brake lines with new Brembo SS lines -- pricey little suckers!

Ok..If one has a problem on hoses and is going to discard them anyway , then you can cut the hoses at the fitting and then use a deep socket on the hex/flare end of the hose to aid in removal.
Another trick is to always keep these old hose ends b/c they make great little line and caliper caps when doing brake work where one has to unhook a caliper or line and wants to plug it. You just plug these ends [ male and female] with golf Tees in the rubber part and then you have either cap with the correct flare and threads for use when lines need capping .. Throw them in the tool box for the next time around...Very Handy.

2X94E500, I guess you're referring to flare wrenches when you say brake wrenches. You may need to use a cheater pipe on the flare wrench to overcome the initial resistance.
