    Sounds like you need the distribution block itself.

    My soft lines look like this, the two hard lines hook right up to it. :wink1: I guess there are other options too.

    The part # I posted looks just like the picture Fubeca posted. Its a factory line that came on later chevy's thats longer than our stock ones.

    Yeah you got an extention. The part I'm telling you about is the softline with the distribution block that you seek. You could get a stock one since you have an extention or you could get the one I listed and have an even longer rear line. Either way they only cost about $16.
