    I was having lunch with my buddy today who is a Mechanic at the local Nissan dealership. Used to work for GM till Obama:mad: bought them out. But I digress.....

    Got him to change my oil and while the truck was in the air I told him "I wish they had put disc brakes on the rear of this truck."

    He told me that a lot of trucks are/will-be going back to drums in the rear now because they seem seem to last longer and are more durable ON TRUCKS.

    Most (70%) of braking is done by the front brakes.

    What is everybody else' 2-cents on this???
