BRAKES

Well I have been looking for a reason to upgrade my brake system and I believe that I have found the reason. I tried to stop and my truck hesitated and I rear ended a car..not to hard thankfully. So I started some trouble shooting steps and flushing the brake lines was first step. well on my last caliper to bleed the nipple sheered off flush with the caliper when I went to open it. So I am done with the whole thing. What Im looking at are stainless steal lines all the way around, cyro rotors, and ssbc calipers what I dont know are where to buy these and who has the best deals. I was hoping if some venders or anyone else could point me in the right direction on where to buy these and to get some good deals. Any advice would be awesome thanks guys.

i have applied rotor technologies rotors, performance plus pads, stainless lines, ate super blue fluid and it stops better than any sd i've ever been in. i got the rotors pads from diesel manor, cary sells lines. powerslots and hawk pads work well or ebc. the ssbc calipers are supposed to be really good but dang they are high. dealership isn't too high on calipers

IIRC I bought my SSBC calipers from racemart. Took a while to get them as they are special order. I run them with powerslot cryo rotors and the truck stops great. If you have a large wheel, there are a few other options for even larger breaks at an even larger price.
