Brake Upgrade

I'm in need of a brake upgrade. I did brakes on the truck about 30K miles ago and since the new tires got put on it stops like a semi truck.

So I'm thinking stoptech kit for the front. but for the rear, I don't know. Should i just get new drums and shoes? Is there anything better to get?

If you have an 8.8 you can get a rear disk conversion from SSBC or just swap in an exploder axle. I don't think there are any upgrades for drum brakes.

yeah 800$ isn't worth it to me haha. that sucks. hopefully the front rotors/pads and new drums/shoes will make a big difference.
