no they weren't checked and what do you mean collapsed??
Dodge Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 11 months ago

they wear out over tie and if you have not been changing the brake fluid at the proper intervals, the inside of the hose gets restricted. when you apply the brakes, the fluid passes too quickly and when you release the brakes the fluid takes time to release. very common issue for this.
