I have a Superfly with Avid Juicy Ultimate breaks. On the front, the pads move in and out much less than on the rear when I squeeze and release the brake levers with the bike in the stand. This makes it very difficult and finicky to set the front brake's position perfect enough to prevent rubbing. Any ideas, or do I need to go the rebuild kit route?

Front brake has less fluid and hose.

Rear brake has more fluid and more hose.

Have you read the Avid website for the adjustment ability for the brake levers and twiddled with the red knobs?

That doesn't matter. The hydraulic brake units are blind to hose length. In any event, both worked the same initially. It's only been recently that this has cropped up.

Take a look at Avid's site...there's some good info there.
Without seeing it, here's some things to check:
Does it need bleeding? Have you tried?
The spring clip might be bent.
You've got a little dirt build up under the pads/around the pistons.
