suburban DD, pulling hair out over fuel lines!!

I have a 2005 chevy suburban for a daily driver/kid hauler. It's a 1500 4x4, 5.3L automatic.

a few days ago it started leaking gas, so I ordered a set of replacement fuel lines. The lines showed up last night, and won't fit. I ran my vin and discovered that my suburban is a FLEX FUEL model, which requires slightly different fuel lines.

I am able to return the incorrect lines, but I'm having a hard time finding the correct lines that are flex fuel specific. I did find a couple on line, but they are being sold as a "fuel feed/emissions vent" set, and are priced from $170 and up. Granted, that's less than the $230 the stealership wants for the lines, but still more than I want to pay for about 5' of fuel line.

So, my question;
Does anyone know of anywhere that I may have missed in my online searches that sells fuel line? Or, are there any places that can custom make the lines, if I take/send in my old ones?

thanks for any help/advice you can give.
Keith

RockAuto has the lines but they're are $176 for aftermarket or $181 for OEM/AC Delco. E85 is nasty stuff, extremely corrosive, and requires special fuel line. Usually stainless steel and special rubber.

shipping!

yeah, I found the lines at RockAuto as well. I even had the lines in my cart ready to purchase; then I saw the $44 shipping charges, and decided to look elsewhere.

Anyway, after posting this yesterday I called Fine Lines, which is who I had ordered the first/non flex fuel lines from. All I can say is WOW!!, and give them a big !! They have awesome customer service, and I'll most definitely call them the next time I need fuel lines.

I am sending them my broken lines, and they are going to make a new set for me.
