    and if you haven't, see what sort of shape the front slider pins are in. If those are crusty the calipers won't move correctly and it will only stop on one pad.

    ever inspect the rear brakes? Most of them haven't been touched in decades. If they aren't working right the braking gets far worse than it should be.

    Yes if you swap the upper arm assembly

    No if you just want to bolt it on.

    If you're doing it, 95-02 spindles are the better mousetrap. 95-97 gets you a slight brake upgrade, 98-02 is the big...
