Default Rear shock air lines

Hey guys,
Does anybody know if the air lines that run to the rear shocks is repairable?
Mine has been wearing down on the inner fender and all I have to do is connect two lines together so I tried with some rubber and hose clamps but its way to high pressure. Gm would love to sell me a $100 line but im seeing if there is an alternative.

I had a hole develop on my trailblazer SS and I used epoxy to patch the hole. I started the truck up to have some air in the lines and put the epoxy on the hole. Left the passage of the tube intact and plugged the whole.

I believe GM sells a repair kit. Also Monroe may since they use nearly the same hoses for many kits to add air shocks/struts.

Napa has the line, and the union/tee'* with compression fittings on them. I spliced the rear shocks when I replaced my coil springs with airbags.
