Brake Issue

So with the new lift and bigger wheels / tires, my Ex stops like CRAP! Iíve tried factory rotors / pads, Powerslot / Hawk LTS, and now have the Powerslot / Ford pads. Over the weekend I had to moderately hit the brakes (strong but not OH $h*t strong) and it was ridiculous. Fortunately I had a shoulder to the right to escape on. I pushed hard on the pedal, I felt it pulse back, but pushed it where it was pretty much all the way to the floor. Brake fluid level is perfect.

Could my brake lines be flexing THAT much? Anyone try the upgrade brake systems from AP Racing? I need to do something cause this ain't gonna fly.

The only way to do it right and make it work like you want is to go with bigger brakes and upgrade to better calipers and SS brake lines.
