    Yes, the hoses are a known problem.

    Just did this on mine, it seems the threads aren’t the greatest coming out of where ever they are made. Just be prepared to re-tap them if it doesn’t plug right in. Hopefully you’ll get a good one though. I ran 1/8” pipe thread in about 2 threads and that’s all it took to clean it up. Press the brakes and crack the bleeder, if it flies out under pressure the line is collapsed.

    Scotty Kilmer wanted to say a few things (always true) on this subject

    He's a little eccentric but I learned a lot from him.

    How many people named Don are posting in this thread? I don't have a dog in this fight.

    I had a pull on my '07 last year after replacing the rotors and pads with EBC products. I also had a stuck caliper, which didn't fix the pulling issue. I eventually replaced the brake lines and the problem went away. Just my experience . . .

    Many years ago I worked at a dealership. I had some wire coat hangers and bent them to use as hangers for calipers I took off so the caliper never hung by the hose. I was the only one there who did that. Some of the guys would slip the caliper off and let it drop and swing. Follow my example and not those guys if you want the hoses to last.

    But don't they go bad on their own?

    Sure they can go bad on their own, just like my girlfriends son. It wasn't her fault. But Mrbadwrench is absolutely right about being protective of the hoses. Some people use clamps and clamp them off too, right? Not a good idea either. The world isn't binary.

    I hope you can take a joke... JM

    If the engine, transfer case, transmission and diff are completely dry, I'd add fluids as soon as possible. Surprised it has not locked/seized up.

    :drink_nl: Hey, it's my birthday soon and I'm starting early. :emotions33: (I know what you meant tho)

    I do now notate you mention on the outside...
