I've done 4 hose jobs on FDs. Use Baker Precision Hose silicone hose, it is thick walled and resists kinking. If I were you I *wouldn't* replace every single hose. Some of the larger hoses are preformed and really don't go bad, purge control *S* hose, oil breather hoses and others like it come to mind.
Just replace the vacuum lines that go to the solenoids. Becareful taking the old hose off or you will end up breaking them. Carefully slit the old hose right where it meets the solenoid with a razor. Twist it GENTLY and it'll pop off. If you just pull them you'll break the nipples right off.
Download Item #7 pdf file and read. Very important. Also if you go with Viton (expensive), use the English sizes 1/8" ID and 1/4" ID instead of the metric 4 mm and 6 mm. Reason is that the 4 and 6 mm hoses in the McMaster-Carr listing have wall thicknesses of only 1 mm. They will collapse under vacuum. The English sizes have 1/8" wall thickness (3.17 mm) and will stay open under at least 25 in Hg vacuum (personal experiences and tests).
