Heavy wheels and tires make a huge difference too.

Ive just done the PowerStop Brake kit on my rear axle still need to install the front kit. They seem to bite a little better. Would like to add stainless break lines and the LML booster but I hate bleeding breaks. Never seem to get the air out.

Im not worried about the rotors cracking as I dont tow or do any super heavy braking. Just wanted a higher quality pad and rotor that would stop on a dime in case of idiots.

I bought Russell's braided lines I see it replaces the soft lines just in the 4 corners, has anyone has a braided line made for the soft line from the frame to the center of the rear axle that splits to each side?

I've put 2 of the Russell kits on and they both came with 5 hoses. Both were for classic body style tho.

Ok so I’m finally happy with my brakes. Just got the LML master cylinder on and I’m impressed. Much less pedal travel. The brake pedal is slightly harder, but I have much more confidence driving. Getting it to work is a pain in the ass but shouldn’t be bad now that I’ve figured it out.

Get an LML brake master cylinder. Find a metric double flare tool. Find 14mmx1.5 inverted flare to 6mm tube fittings. Drill out the fittings with a 17/64 drill bit. If your fittings aren’t threaded all the way to the top. Cut off the top and and use a drill bit to bevel the fitting. Cut only the flare off of the factory lines (make sure you cut it straight) remove factory fittings. Install new fittings, and flare the line. Install everything

where did you get the 14mmx1.5 inverted flare to 6mm tube fitting?do you know the thread size of your original master?

eBay. I think the sellers name is inline tube. The 01-10 master cylinder is 12mm x 1.0

So LML hydro unit and LML master = better LMM brakes for low bucks? Cool! Thanks for coming back instead of letting the thread die! Always nice to see something like this have an ending instead of left hanging!

I have the everything here to make the master work, just haven’t found the time to mod the fittings, and re work lines to make it work. BTW thanks Anthony for the help awhile back on where to find the fittings.

This should work on 01-10 trucks not just LMM. I think I have less than $1000 into everything and the truck stops great. Iím considering SSBCís calipers now.

Yea no problem. Iím still trying to find fittings that donít need to be modded, or maybe have some made.
