    Didn't they switch to disc brakes in the rear and then a few years later, ditch the idea and go back to drums? I was told it was because the drums actually performed better because in a truck....most of your braking power is up front anyway. 2000 sounds about right and I think it was maybe 2005 or 2006 that they went back to drums.

    Can I ask what you are asking this for? It might help us better tell you what you are really wanting to know here.

    99 was first year 05 was the last can still get as a option.
    But gm was spending to much money on warranty on rear disc rotor warp..premature brake wear.
    Like said drum brakes will stop the truck faster.

    Gitter done have fun. Running on empty...running blind...running behind.....
