I am going to replacing quick connect couplers since one is leaking.
Do I have to bleed the system to get the air out after installing the new connectors?

John Deere systems are usually self bleeding unless changing the main hydraulic filter/fluid. However, you could build a loop/valve setup to help get the air out of the lines.

You don’t have to bleed anything. Just change them & run the cylinder(s) a few times & get back to work.

I have 2 on my 4 in 1 bucket. One set goes together just fine. The other set I have to really struggle with. Should I replace that set or am I doing something wrong?

My guess is pressure has built up in the one that is hard to connect. You could swap them and I bet the same hose (not coupler) will be hard to connect

Catfish, Per Zebra5's comment: BEFORE STARTING TRACTOR, push/pull levers for bucket...a few times. This will remove all pressure from hoses & couplers.
