Default Need new brakes!
My brakes are singing especially the rears.
There is plenty of material left but its very old and brittle.
It'd probably be in my best interest to just start fresh with new hardware, shoes, drums and wheel cylinders.

Do you guys have any recommendations for replacement parts?
Anyone used the powerstop z36 front pads and rotors?
I keep reading about the Chevy 1 ton wheel cylinders.
Can anyone elaborate?

Thanks guys!

The PowerStop Z36 pads have good reviews by everyone that's used them.
1 ton wheel cylinders can make the truck handle weird.

Do the 1 ton wheel cylinders attach like the factory ones? Maybe I'll just get OE replacements. Can't imagine it being that huge of an upgrade.

2000+ can't do the 1 ton cylinder upgrade.
