You want to buy a used A/C hose? Why not just go to the nearest auto parts store since you have to replace the drier, pull a vacuum and recharge. If you are going to put time and money into the repair on a late model truck just use new parts.

have you got the price for a new a/c line? i have its over 200 dollars if you can find it. your best bet is to go to a junk yard i pulled mine off an 06 explorer with a blown engine.

He didn't say which A/C line is leaking. Sorry I would rather sink 1 days pay for a new part then waste a day if not days searching for a used part.

all he has to do is take a day go to the junkyard and find one mine cost me 25 dollars from there. rather than wasting over 200 dollars for a new one.
