if there not origonal hoses then thats prbably not the problem there is no way to tell from the outside, you just have to change them and see what happens. another thing i thought of is that it might not be the brakes at all if you had a worn or bad control arm bushing you could get the same thing, the first time you hit the brake in either direction is the first time you put the load on the chasis so it would shift if there is play. also make sure the wheel bearings are tight and the ball joints and all other suspension parts are in good shape. if your not sure how to check everything properly. ask around for a good reputable shop to do a saftey check. hope this helps,
