Funny blue spring & banjo bolt help!!!

Hello everyone.
So my 2005 f250 6.0 115,200 miles.
K&n intake
Mbrp 4" straight pipe 6" tip
Sinister coolant filer
Sct
EGR delete
Upgraded oil cooler

Ok now to the meat n taters
So me being the weekend wrencher I'm hooked on working to make my first diesel better n better. It's become a hobby I enjoy. So I've done everything myself so far. Went to do the blue spring upgrade Saturday. Figured it looked easy enough. So this is how a 20 minute DIY turned into a tow n $250 repair bill. Pissed , disappointed, and embarrassed is a perfect description of how I'm feeling. Went to break nut loose to disconnect fuel line from filter . Took awhile just wouldn't break. Out of pb blaster I only had wd40. Finally boom got it!!! So there I am feeling like the beez neez and I realized I bent the fuel line like a pretzel shortly there after. Don't have the tool to fix or know how to. Like I said new to Diesels n very new to wrenching. So the tow n shop it went. I know I'm being robbed for $300 but had no choice. Probably $40 part n 30 minute fix. So that's that. Now I have a question to you pros out there. I know this is dumb but where do the banjo bolts go? Didn't get directions. If someone has a picture I sure would be grateful .

The banjo bolts go in the front of both heads
