Automatic Level Control Tube Damaged

While replacing my power steering hoses, I damaged the little tube at the left front wheel well that goes from the air compressor dryer to the back shocks. The GM manual shows a Tubing Repair Kit for the Electronic Level Control. Don't see anything about a kit on line. Any ideas from The B Body Brain Trust??

Go to a real parts store & get a air shock line kit. You can get either compression unions or something of the sort to mend it back together.

Since the rest of that hose is 20 years old it would be wise to consider fishing a new one along/in the frame from comp to the rear.

FWIW I had the same line fail from a wearpoint, and a dealer used a teeny teeny compression union to make the repair. But that was 15 years ago when these cars were a lot nearer to current model.
