Can anyone explain the inner stepping on the rear caliper line (banjo) and if it's orientation (thick/thin inner step) matters? I didn't pay particular attention to it when I put them on and was wondering about it. They weren't labeled left/right.
It should make sense when you go to put them on. So the new line sits flush with the caliper opposite the bleeder screw. It's curved a bit so it'll sit the proper way towards the hard line. Careful with the washers when you take off the old lines. They can be dirty and you may miss one or both.

Inside that banjo bolt where the fluid travels it is stepped. It might only go one way. I was thinking about it after I put them on and was asking if there was any concern one way or another. Probably not it sounds like. I will pull one tomorrow and take a pic since I can't describe this too well
i have one in my hand right now.
the diameter is the same on both sides, the step in the middle is for the fluid to go through.
as long as the lines are installed with the bend in the correct orientation you are all set.
