Leaking only when running, is under driverside on the inner part of the frame (haven't jacked truck up yet) appears to be on the opposite side of the fame where the 2 gas liness do a 90 degree bend to the inner part of the frame..( truck is lowered)
Do yourself a favor, buy the factory lines from Chevrolet and have a professional replace them

SOURCE: brake line leaking
I had this same issue. This location you mentioned is prone to the accumulation or road grit/sand and water and leads to rust through of the two brake lines. I determined it was best to take a tubing cutter and remove the bad sections and just replace them with new brake lines. (splice in) You'll need a steel tubing flare kit, two brake lines ( i picked em up at the parts store) two 36" and and four inverted flare adapters. The parts guys will assist you well, let them know what you are doing. Should go pretty good for you if you have any contortionist blood in ya! Naw, it's just a bit tricky to flare the tube while up in there.

The only way I know of to get the diagram you are looking for is to acquire a "build book". Even dealer service manuals don't have this diagram. I got one from faxonautoliterature for $49 plus shipping. A better bet would be to find a spot on either end of the leak where you can work on it easily and work from there. Hope this helps.

If you aren't experienced with brakes you should see a mechanic. With metering valves, proportioning valves, ABS accumulators and other variables they need a trained eye. A master cylinder could be leaking into the vacuum system and not visible. Sometimes a wet backing plate can identify a leaky wheel cylinder. Portions of the line are rubber hoses. Even parts that are not leaking may be damaged and causing problems elsewhere.

More than likely you have a busted fuel line, or one of the connections from the fuel lines to the fuel pump is broken. If you know how to repair cars, drop the tank and find the leak. If you don't know how, have the vehicle towed to a shop. Driving the car would definitely be a fire hazard.
