Sure they sell Nickle Copper lines in NY. All the Europeon manufactures use Nickle Copper. BMW, Mercedes, VW, Audi, Volvo- they have been using nickle copper for 30 years, because it does not corrode. It is near criminal GM did not update from steel to nickle copper. It is a safety and reliability issue. My Wife'* Bravada brake line corroded at 60k miles. Garage kept and always washed.
In NY, they sell the Nickel Copper at Advance Auto parts. hey sell it in pre made lengths and in raw tube. The pre-cut lengths are behind the counter, have to ask for it.

To the OP, go with the pre-made laser bent entire assembly. Cheapest and easiest in the long run. Pull your bed, remove the old line remnants and drop in the pre bent new lines. Super easy. Your old lines will continue to fail. The new lines go from the master cylinder all the way to the calipers. I have done two of these, worked so very well.
