    Hi All,

    Popped the drums off my 1996, with 180,000 to find my original pads still at 80% (or more)!. I realize that the front does 70% of the braking, but is there anyway to get more braking power out of the back? I tow and would like to reduce push a little more and take some of the pressure of the front.

    Thanks!

    Josh

    PS: for the first 140,000 mile of its life the truck lived in Montana and commuted 6miles of dirt road daily!
