If replacing the brake hoses, it is a good time to upgrade to stainless steel braided lines. Can get extended ones too. Most say they aren't needed, but with my adjustable front lowers, my brake hoses are pretty close to being taut. Haven't swapped hoses yet but bought a Goodridge kit, 4-15008, which comes with the four caliper hoses. There are other part numbers for the kit, 2-15008 and 15008, signifying the extension of the hoses. There is a fifth hose, the body to rear axle hose, which is not in the kit. Contacted Goodridge and they said they would look into it (doubt anything will change). So bought the body to rear axle hose from Clayton Offroad, COR-1300101. Clayton has the front caliper hoses but does not list rear caliper hoses. That is why I got the Goodridge kit for the caliper hoses.

First easy step is take all the brakes apart and make sure everything is clean, then bolt everything back together but use some washers to pack out the lug nuts so the rotors are held on tight without the wheels, then rotate them by hand to see/feel where its rubbing and go from there.
