Suburban brake upgrade
I have an 08 Sub LT that i'd like to modify a bit.
Want to eliminate what I feel is brake fade. What's an easy, inexpensive way to better achieve reduced braking distance? Don't want to change calipers, but lines, pads etc...
Don/t want to spend the farm as I have other mods to do as well. Safety 1st though.

Take a look at EBCbrakes.com and check out their drilled and slotted rotors and the Yellowstuff brake pads. But if you like and want to buy, then go over to partstrain.com and get your EBC stuff they have great discounts on all EBC stuff!99 Silverado 1500 Z71

Get steel braided brake lines, and replace the flex tubes, about a 100 bucks. Its the best place to start and can often be overlooked. It would be the same as having some awesome processor in your computer and only having dial-up access.99 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"
