Congrats on the baby and good luck on the van.
Heads up, I used the Rough Country 89710 and I wouldn't recommend them. Two issues I ran into.
1 - About 3-4 inches too long in my opinion.
2 - Yes, they do have the correctly sized 3/8 fitting that connects to the hard line. However, the outside size and shape of the fitting itself will not work with the hole on the econoline frame. The factory fitting on the econoline slides into a hole on the frame and it is then clipped to be secured. The fitting in the rough county 89710 is bigger than the hole (and shaped differently) and where the clip slides in on the fitting does not protrude far enough for the clip.
I was way out of my return window, so I ended up carefully reducing the fitting size and reshaping it to fit (and widening the clip cavity as well).
I'm sure there is a better fitting option out there, I just had to make these work.
