Question about Globe Union Glacier Bay 8 In Double Handle Kitchen Faucet with Spray in Chrome F80246
By switching the supply lines you have eliminated the faucet as the culprit. It sounds like you may have mineral deposits lodged in the angle stop (the valve supplying water to the faucet) Shut off the inlet water to your water heater and open the lowest faucet's hot water side. if this is the one with the problem, be prepared for significant water spillage (you could open the TPV valve on the water heater to reduce pressure prior to attempting a fix).
angle stops have seats and washers, or cartridges, just like faucets and silcocks do. try flushing potential debris out of the angle stop (USE EXTREME MODERATION) or replace the angle stop. Compression styles are easiest to install, but sweat fitting are generally more durable. If you are not confident in your plumbing skills, call a professional.

Had similar problem. Disconnect pull out hose from supply hose and clean grit out of check valve(small plastic valve inserted into pullout hose at connection). Replace and presto more pressure!

Check the weight and see if it has screws in it to move in on the hose line the distance it lacks retracting.
Most of them can be adjusted to proper retracting mode. It may have a couple of screws in it.
