Brakes HOT!

Hi again everyone. (Hi ABRROX...)

Anyway, question about my '88 302. Today I took it for a bath after the 45 minute drive home in rush hour traffic. When I sprayed the wheel with the high pressure water, the wheels were letting off some major steam under the hubcap. The brakes must have been damn hot. I know it was rush hour traffic and Broncos weigh a lot, but is it normal for the fronts to run so hot? If that happened in my 5.0 I'd be seriously worried. Tell me why I shouldn't be, please, in my Bronco. BTW, the brakes work fine.

Thanks again from the Bronco newbie.
