    For big brakes are you talking about upgrading to like 6 piston calipers, with a 15" rotor from BAER or WILWOOD or BREMBO? What kind of horsepower are you running right now, if you are just stock then you don't need a $5,000 set of brakes. If you are going with dual STS turbos or a supercharger then yes I would go with the "quick change" WILWOOD setup, It is similar to having a quick change rear end.

    Dont waste the money, get some steel braided brake lines and just upgrade the pads and rotors on stock clipers.

    Contact SSBC Stainless Steel brakes Corp. in New York, they have many options for stopping a truck better I just ordered a 14" rotor upgrade kit that uses the stock calipers so you don't even have to bleed the brakes...my 2004 Denali is fast, but doesn't stop worth a sh*t!
