When I switched to 31s I've noticed that issue as well. Since I'm a 2000 I4 I have the dinky 10 inch rotors and I can't even lock my front tires now. It's ridiculous. Luckily I inherited 10 inch drums when I did my rear end swap so the back brakes wayyy better now. I really wish I would have gotten the 2001+ 11 inch brake spindles when I got my lift spindles. Oh well hopefully disc brake swap and switching to EBC rotors and yellow stuff pads will help.

Same. Downshifting can run pads well into the 100k range.

Yeah I was gonna say Korey switched to EBC rotors and yellow stuff pads and he loves them. That's what I want to run. Since you are 2002 you also have the 11 inch rotors like he does, it would be pricey but you could switch to 2003 1/2+ 12 inch rotors which would help.
Disc brake swap would help a ton, I guess 33s and 35s like to bust drum hardware anyway so that's probably not a bad idea.
