    I don't think that's what he's looking for. Pretty sure ARB uses either Swagelok or standard compression fittings. Try McMaster-Carr.

    Personally, I would use stainless Swagelok fittings with a two-piece locking sleeve. Look on page 158-159 in the McMaster catalog or just do a search for swagelok or Compression Tube Fittings

    Is this what you are looking for? ARB

    You can order online from www.inchwormgear.com

    I have ordered from them in the past and had good a experience. Shipping is quite high but they have what you need.

    Also remember the ARB line is metric (5mm), so you will basically NOT find the correct size ferrule at any local hardware/plumbing supply store. Just order from an ARB dealer.

    yes bret i need 3 and 4

    i just got my front drive line in and wanted to go test all the stuff i just put in my blazer dana 60 with the arb and ord cross over high steer kit and a detroit in the rear :D
    for the 5 minutes the arb was working it was pretty cool :D

    while i was twisting it up to see how well the steering worked the air supply line got pulled against my manifold and melted a hole in it :doah:

    luckily i left the full lenth of line attached and coiled up by the compressor now i just need to cut the bad off and get the new compression fitting parts then reroute the line well away from the manifold

    thanks for the help

    i bought 5 ferrules from the arb tech department paid $6.60 for the ferrules

    and they charged me $14.00 for shipping and handling :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    i won't do that again if i need to repair the air line after the 5 ferrules are gone i will find a way to convert to standard stuff instead of metric
