You're just about 90% there, why not change out the calipers and hoses while you are at it?

I replaced the calipers when I did my brakes last time and the hoses are good. I fear one caliper is sticking, though. I guess we'll see when I get into them. Unfortunately I can't find my receipt and don't remember where I bought the calipers.

Oh my someone went with some good quality brands.
I realize raybestos ain't what they used to be but I'm not sure if you're serious or sarcastic. It's all made in China, including the motorcraft.

I have found, though, that cheap rotors from a decent brand have lasted as long as expensive rotors. What I've seen is the pad makes the difference. I was going to buy hawk pads as usual but...I didn't want to spend the money this time around. And it's just as well because after ordering the front brakes I remembered I needed to do the back as well. So the cost savings of non-hawk pads just about covered the rear brake parts.

Check your hose on the caliper that is sticking & make sure it isn't collapsed. Rule of thumb, is always change your hose when you change your caliper.

and this is the brake job that took me way too long to complete. it took 3 days to bleed the damn brakes, even.
day 1 - realized i didn't have enough brake fluid.
day 2 - bought brake fluid and then found the wheel cylinder was leaking
day 3 - replaced the wheel cylinder then finally bled the brakes.
