Anybody swapped out their original steel trans lines with something flexible? Say braided line? I'm tired of the steel lines running right under the oil pan bolts and they both are leaking and need replacement. I was thinking of running flexible line to replace the two steel lines and perhaps redirecting them away from right under the oil pan bolts.

I doubt your tranny lines are leaking. Tranny lines are high pressure, so it would be a spray, I'm guessing your oil pan is leaking on the tranny lines. That is actually a very good place for the lines, if you move them they would get close to the exhaust. Or you'd have to go cross the exhaust to get back to the trans.

I redid the tranny lines that needed to be relocated:
