Ever since I lifted the truck I feel like my front brakes are yelling at me. So I am looking for the brake upgrade. I saw that 4wheelparts had the EradiSpeed Plus 1 kit for the fronts last year but I've looked all over the site since then and dont see them so I am guessing they no longer have them. Anyone know a place that has the Plus 1 kit for a decent price? I found one site that has them shipped for $582.00

I just installed Powerslot 14" rotors with Hawk pads and am pretty pleased with the results. $537.85 shipped from Summit Racing

put stainless lines on as well, its a huge improvement
Thats another thing I did. I used the Russell lines for lifted trucks/SUV's.

powerslot rotors with hawk pads and stainless line will give you a good improvement and not cost too much, ive done this on a few trucks and noticed them lasting alot longer too.

In case anyone wants to know, these are the part numbers I ordered from Summit.

Brake Kit: PSR-29-8690 (Powerslot part #29-8690)
Pads: HWK-HB323Y-724 (Hawk part # HB323Y-724)

Keep in mind this is for a six lug 2001 Suburban. I'm sure it fits many GM Fullsize truck's/SUV's

And the Powerslot rotors are 2" larger in diameter than the factory rotors.

I've only done the front so far, but I'm planning on doing the rears when it comes time.

does it come with a relocation bracket for the calipers? Also, does it require 18" wheels? If i were to do this on a NNBS i would have to run 18's correct?

Oh yeah!. Once the break-in process was done, a noticeable improvement.

you still need the stainless steel lines.
I don't, but J.Roc would benefit from them.

does it come with a relocation bracket for the calipers?
Yes.

Also, does it require 18" wheels?
Yes

If i were to do this on a NNBS i would have to run 18's correct?
I would assume so.

I can get those parts for about $517 shipped for GMFS members.
Wish I knew about that two weeks ago, I could of saved $20.

Definitely saving your name for when I take care of the rear brakes.
