Default Air Shock Problem

I needed to replace a rear air shock after it sprung a leak. I couldn't remove the ELC air line as it was stuck and refused to budge. I ended up cutting the line. I now need to splice in a new air line. But I can't find replacement line anywhere. The replacement air shock is from Monroe. Monroe hasl an air line kit, AK-18, which I purchased, but the line'* inside/outside diameter is larger than the stock line. And it doesn't have a flared end like the stock line either. The dealer was no help at all.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
