    I'm in the process of completing my diff install and found that finding fittings for the 5mm air line is a pain. I've come across a source for 5mm push-to-fit fittings and figured I'd share.

    If you want to run an airline right out of the ARB compressor without the solenoid you'll need these.

    If you want to make a 90 degree turn and don't have the space required for the large bend in the plastic air line you'll want one of these.

    And if you need to make a quick repair to a cut air line you'll definitely want some of these.

    If you come across other fittings please post them.

    This site has a good selection of fittings as well as replacement parts.

    Thanks, these should come in handy when swapping from the normal switch to a manual air switch :D

    No problem, glad to help.

    On the subject of switching to a full pneumatic system you'll want to check out powertanks website.

    I have a set of these ordered for my setup. I'll post pictures and maybe a video when they show up.
