Hi friends!

My new-to-me 2014 Glee has a problem. The hose running from the preload adjuster to the shock has a hole in it, and the oil has all leaked out as a result. I found the tutorial on refilling the oil here: http://www.stromtrooper.com/maintenance-how/72663-how-disassemble-fill-up-your-rear-preload-adjuster-pics.html

Very helpful and (seemingly) very easy. However, I want to know if I can source a new hose. On one end it looks like a standard brake banjo bolt, though I've not measured it. What about on the other end? Does anyone know if this part is available individually, or, failing that, if there's something I can use in its place?

Thanks!

You might play around with the brake line configurator at Spiegler:
https://spieglerusa.com/brakes/brake-lines-accessories-tools/custom-brake-lines.html

I know one end is a banjo bolt, but it's 8mm, not the standard 10mm used in most brake systems. Spiegler has 8mm banjo fittings, but I don't know offhand what size the threaded fitting at the other end is.

Here in Indy, I could also take the pieces to Earl's, the race plumbing shop down by the speedway, and they would be able to set me up. You might poke around to see if you can find a local hydraulic, race, or hot rod supplier.
