IF you have Hydraulic Shop, you can take FRONT brakes lines to them and they will put braided stainless lines on.

They remove hose caliber connector and crimp on Braided Stainless Hose.

Braided Stainless Hose is about twice the inside diameter of OEM.

A bit late to the dance on this but I had this problem when I took Kate out of storage last year.
Front wheels were very hot on return from her first run (I checked as I could smell the brakes).
On a quiet street with forgiving neighbours, I built up speed in 1st gear and slammed on the brakes.
Did the same in reverse - repeated.
This broke the callipers loose

Other options may be better, but none cheaper or less painful.

Had a similar issue with our Toyota Tundra once. Manifested itself as a bad vibration. Hard to place at first. Read a few posts on their forum and one person suggested touching each wheel after driving for a bit. Sure enough they were all cool to the touch except the left-rear which was plenty hot. Turned out it was a stuck caliper piston. Took two of the poor tire shop guys with long crowbars to pry it loose. Replaced both rear calipers, pads, etc. and all was right with the world once more.
