"They quoted 3.5 hours for the brake lines and 3 for the sway bars."
I did both of these myself. When I did the brake lines I also added SpeedBleeds so the flushing/bleeding of the brakes was really quick in my case. The brake lines are time consuming at home taking one or two wheels off at a time and having to keep jacking the car up and down. On a lift it should be quicker then the sway bars.
The front sway bar is easy to install, the rear is a PITA to get out. I had to drop the spare tire and exhaust and bend a heat shield to do it but was able to leave the wheels on.
As for time it took I really didn't keep much track of that sort of thing. The brake lines where probably 2 hours. The front sway bar was 45 minutes or so, the rear was probably 2 hours.
On a lift they would all be easier and quicker to do.
Hope this helps,
