Fuel line replacement help

I've noticed the 2 silver fuel lines on drivers side behind shock tower are leaking some how. Just bought new ones today and was wondering if anyone has done this before and could offer some tips on how to go about this. Thanks Bill

I would suggest taking a good look at the oil cooler first for any kinda of leak,those lines had me thinking the same thing , after cleaning this area many times it was obvious the cooler was the culprit .
The cooler has 4 o rings that are prone to leak after so many miles and cold weather service

the o-ring in the line could be bad, you'll need the line tool to get it apart most parts houses sell them.
