    Upgrade the front brakes, adjust the rear drums, and be done with it.

    Call Edwin at RaceShopper.com and order a set of SP Performance slotted rotors and Hawk pads. Then call AllPro and get a set of stainless steel braided brake lines for the front. Install everything and bleed the system.

    For a free upgrade, jack up the rear of the truck so the wheels are off the ground. Adjust the star spinner inside the rear drum assembly so the brake shoes drag *slightly* when the wheel is spun. Repeat on the other side.

    Do not convert to rear disc brakes.

    I haven't been able to do this yet but it's your best option. I'm gonna do it after I get new wheels.

    Reviving this for any feed back on the EBC USR 7237 Sport Slotted rotors. I'm giving these a real hard look for replacements when I change the pads out. I found them for $180.00 as a pair free shipping.

    Thank in advance for any feed back. :D

    No personal experience with those, but this...
    ... is the best advice you're gonna find. The RaceShopper site is terrible but their prices are amazing and they ship crazy fast. Edwin's a great guy that's been getting my business for over a decade. I've never received a wrong part and what he sells is top of the line for great prices.

    I went with good 'ole Autozone blank rotors and ceramic pads. Everything cost me around $150 (rotors and pads) and they feel and perform very well. Pads have a lifetime warranty on them also so when they wear out, I get new ones for free. Eventually I'll upgrade to SS lines but I'm staying away from Hawk pads and anything drilled and/or slotted.
