    Just out of curiosity, which tires lock up first for you, front or back? Its been my experience that the back tires lock up first every time. I have a hard time getting my front tires to lock up at all. Just trying to find out how common this is with blazers. I know I need to do a brake job on the front , but was curious how well it would stop when I get it all working right. Anyone know of good after market front disk systems that are not too expensive? Thanks
