Rear Brakes Lock

On my W123, lately the rear brakes have been locking on good amount of pressure, I'd say the amount of pressure is slightly before slaming them on. The did it with the 195/65/r15s more than with the 235/45/17s now. The rear hoses have a crack on them where it attaches to the caliper. I got new rear hoses, and I ordered new front ones so I could do it all at the same time. Do you think this is causing the problem? Maybe do the calipers need to be rebuilt?
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
