The stock, rubber oil cooler lines are known to burst due
to age.  It is highly recommended to change both of
them even if they are not leaking right now.  You don't
want to be stranded, or possibly be killing your engine when
they do burst on you!  The oil cooler lines give very little
warning when they fail, so prevention is the key.
Most replacement oil cooler lines are stainless steel braided
lines.  These can use AN fitting or banjo fittings (like the
stock OEM oil cooler lines).
If this is a bit pricy, contact a local hydraulic hose shop
locally; try checking you local telephone yellow pages under
"hydraulic".  Prices to replace the hoses and reuse your existing
fittings should be about US$50 each line; to do both lines would
be about US$100 for the pair.
