    I just bought a DC Long Bed and the brakes really seem to be lacking on this truck, I had a 98 ext. cab before, is it me? or should they have beefed these up more?

    gotta agree.....these brakes are a long way from great. im gonna get a set of hawk ceramics soon....have heard these are really awesome, and i may go with a set of power slot rotors. some will also say that going with stainless braided brake lines and a different brake fluid makes a world of difference in the brakes not being soft/mushy anymore.

    I know in a few reviews they called the brakes "spongy," and I can kind of see it.

    I've heard that if you put stainless steel brake lines on, it's helps the brakes.

    I don't have any experience with that - and it makes sense. I just don't have a reason to spend the time & money to do it myself. :rolleyes:
