Yet another upgrade for the 80.... larger front brakes. I HATE brakes that fade, brakes that are not up to the job, brakes that warp, you all know what I'm talking about.... the automatic transmission doesn't help matters either. It's a peve of mine. This season, larger rotors will be finding their way onto the piggy so it may properly slow and stop time after time while driving over the various mountain passes around here. IMO, the stock calipers are more than adequate for the job. A larger more stable rotor is needed, more leverage, more heat absorbing ability, and much greater heat disapation. The plan, find a floating HD directional vane rotor in the 12.5" - 13" dia. x 1.25"+ thick size. Then, have a steel hat machined to fit it to the hub.... Have a bracket machined from steel to space the caliper out further for rotor clearance. The upgrade will most likely require a 17" wheel, though it may be possible for it to sneak under a steel 16". A 17" wheel won't be an issue for me, the 35"+ tire I will be running should still have plenty of sidewall. My point in posting this? More than 1 set can be done, if other folks have some interest, I can get an esimate on what this upgrade will cost. Not looking to make any money on this one (actually looking to save, the more they make, the cheaper it is, I've done this before). Sooooo.... just offering up something that has always been a no brainer upgrade for a fatty truck with large tires. I'd like to keep the cost around $500 - not including the wheel and tire upgrade. Have at it.
