Need help quick please! (caliper question)

If I change out the calipers on my truck, should I also change out the brake lines going to them?

My caliper locked up on my truck, the warranty company is covering the calipers, but not the brake hoses, and the shop is telling me that I should change out the hoses.

*This is on the F250 rear by the way.

I don't see why you would need to if theres nothing wrong with the lines them selves.

We don't know why the caliper locked up... I don't know if it could have anything to do with the lines. Freaking things cost $52 each.

I don't know... but I am not going to mess with the brake lines myself, I will only change the brake pads.
