Rear air suspension / line is broke where does it go?

I bought the Monroe shocks and pulled the wheel off to see that my air line is broke. Where is the compressor or where do the lines go? If I have to pull the tank or something I will go get the shocks with springs and ditch the air. Line is super small, I don't think there is any chance of splicing it. Thanks

the lines hook to the pump and other end to shock and you have the 3800 in it.

It is a 2002 with the 3800. From what I could see the lines disappeared above the fuel tank and I have no desire to drop that. Figured the lines went to the pump but I wasn't sure how they were routed or where the pump was. Back right corner, huh, guess I need to dig around some more. I called Oreillys Auto Parts and they can't get the lines. OEM only?

BTW, if you meed a splice, all you need is an 1/8" compression union!

I have spliced them before because I had a bad line. I replaced the fitting and joined them near the pump with a compression union. Cost me under 10$. I called to get the OEM lines and they wanted 180$ for them.

I personally prefer, and use an 1/8" X 1/8" tube to tube fitting as shown below. This type of fitting prevents the compression fitting Ferrell from compressing the tube and either leaking, or restricting flow.
