Non RSC Sterling Brake lines

Does anyone out there have solutions for the sterling brake lines on a non RSC van?
Let me explain:

Van chassis has one rear brake line.
Sterling Axle has 2 rear brake lines.

I need to extend the factory brake line and tee them off at the RSC axle.

Anyone tackled this or have a solution. Ideally, I get an extended line that "Tees" off onto the sterling mounting solution, that is mounted to the diff breather. However I could use some links to parts that extend the line and tee them off at the diff breather.

Thanks!

Can you just pull the tee of your existing axle?

What are you doing for your speed signal? This is a harder one to tackle…

No I can't.
The "Tee" includes the line from the van, and the left brake line.
Its too short in two dimensions.

Garage
Find a hose & fitting shop that can make custom hoses...we just did this on our van. bought the stock hose at the parts store, took it to the hose & fitting shop as a template to match the fittings and they made 5 hoses for less than what the parts store wanted...and they're braided teflon, which is much better than OEM.

The reason I say 5 hoses is because the OEM rear hose from the frame to the axle includes the hose to the drivers caliper...and we split this hose into two separate hoses to make repair easier. Three hoses for the rear and two for the front.

FWIW my local Napa will end brake line and swags on hoses and fittings. Usually takes less time that trying to cross reference the catalogs.

Update:
I solved this by going to pick and pull and getting the rear brake line set up off a single-feed sterling. I believe it was an 2003 F250, as research lead me to believe the single feed sterling is a 99-2005 model run.
Now all I need to do is get the main feed extended. Either my hydro shop or a ~ $80 brake line extension for a lift will cover this.


Also know that my tone ring for ABS is in the output shaft of the trans. So all that is going to my rear axle in terms of wires are the e-locker wires I will add.

According to my notes and local hydro guys, I had to grab an adapter
From 3/8-24
To 7/16-24
To make this work
