Well I headed to Home Depot and found a plastic pipe that fits perfectly. Its 5/8 OD 1/2 ID H/C PEX tube. $1.88 for 5 feet ( scew 84169 48506 )I cut it to insert 1/2 inch into each tube They fit quite snug so no air will leak, I don't have to worry about it slipping out. Its also a very rigid tubing and looks like it will not deteriorate. The attached photo shows the new tube installed. Below the white replacement tube is the old foam tube
Notice the black and blue on the thumb, got that working on the SDL. Adjusting the toe-in toe-out and the jack got me!!!

The AC is comming along but slowly, I wish it was done, but with the heat here in Texas I don't feel like working on the car. I really have no excuse since I have a AC in the garage and it can actually be quite comfortable when I let it cool things off for 30 mins or so. I will get it done eventually. Actually its probably the summer cold that I have. Iv'e been off work a couple of days, couldn't get the ears to equalize so I didn't want to fly and rupture an ear drum.
