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.
