Re: tried to get new rotors, was asked if i had He
Not sure which end you need help with but we'll do both. Ok... Front pads. There are two numbers for front pads on your year truck. If you have a 1/2 ton truck, standard cab - you need the 368 pads. If you have 1/2 ton ext. cab, then use the 369 pad kit. Those are just primary numbers, depending on who you get the pads from... The raybestos number would be PGD368 or PGD369 for their Professional grade pads.
The rotors for the front for standard cab will be Aimco number 5568 . Ext cab rotors will be Aimco 5569 .
As for rear drum size and shoe width, you have a 1/2 ton truck, then you have 10 inch rear brakes... that one is a gimme. Though auto parts stores will ask you whether you have 10" or 11 5/32" shoes, I have never seen a ten bolt with that setup... So get yourself the 593 shoes. 10" rear drums are Aimco part number 8973 .
Take those numbers to the parts store with you... if they cant figure out what the numbers mean, you need to find another parts store - fast!

Any good auto store can cross the Aimco number to one they stock.
Hope this is some help to you! Good luck! [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
EDIT - Ok, just found out that it is possible that your standard cab has the heavy duty option (however very rare... look on your RPO plate for the code F44 . If its not there, then its not heavy duty. F44 is the RPO for "Chassis Equipment, Heavy Duty"
