    You shouldnt need to replace the hose unless its damaged. There is no way of telling if the piston needs changing until you actually have it taken out of the caliper so having one on hand isnt a bad thing. Watch the handbrake mechanism when you strip the caliper down. Rebuilding a caliper is quite a task the first time around so if you havent done it before, be patient. In all honesty, I have rebuilt calipers before, but all the hassle that goes into it, I would probably, if it were my car, just buy a refurbed one - its so much easier
