Brake Lines DIY or Pro?

My front brakes are dragging, and I've pretty much got down to the brake lines by process of elimination.

Is this a good DIY project, or would it be better to let the pros do it?

If you front brakes are dragging my first guess would be calipers not returning properly. If it was me I would replace or rebuild them.

Well I replaced the calipers already and I'm back to the same issue, I started with. All signs point to the front brake lines. Sometimes the caliper doesn't even engage
