As I described in my initial post, I'm going to put a quick disconnect on the line that goes to the rear brakes (there's only one line that feeds both brakes). That quick disconnect coupling will let me swap axles without having to bleed them each time.

I'm also going to make a bracket that will let me do the same thing with the parking brake cables--I'll be able to just bolt them up without having to readjust.
