K1500 disc brake upgrade

Anybody upgrade to bigger front brakes on a K1500 truck or Suburban?
What parts are available to swap in?

Re: K1500 disc brake upgrade

None that are OEM, to my knowledge. Unless you want to go aftermarket.

Check out Stillen's website for brake upgrade kits from AP and Brembo. The website has a year/make/model filter to help wade thru the listings. The front kits are over $3k and most require a 17" wheel. The rear disc upgrades are over $1k. Neither setup addresses the brake bias, since they use the same/oem plumbing.
