Brake fluid leak

I noticed that i have a small brake leak at the front of my truck. I havent been in town long enough to find the problem. I think i have the leak pin pointed. It looks like there is brake fluid ontop of the drivers side frame rail to the left of the radiator. There are three?? Steel lines and i believe one of them are leaking. What are yalls thoughts on this. Im not very educated on the whole hydroboost system. Any thoughts are appreciated.

What you're looking at, is the ABS Module. Wash it down and, when dry, sprinkle Talc over it and then look at it frequently for evidence of the leaks origin. You've got to determine where it Starts to know what to fix!

Also, I would do this "sooner" rather than "later" as brake fluid can do some nasty things... Also a good time to flush it once you get it fixed.
