    I was bored, and had a few dollars burning a hole in my pocket, so I bought and installed new brake pedal pads on both my 1991 V3500/Crew Cab and my 1985 K30/Dually today. They cost a whole $4 each at Autozone. The original brake pedal pads wher long gone on both my trucks. I highly recommend replacing these to anybody with an old GM. They even give you a false feeling of a higher brake peddle at first for a while.

    I've also heard you can drill some holes in it to loose some of the weight. I just don't know if I'm that advanced yet. plus it'd be a shame to start cutting up a perfect pedal...maybe wait until it gets it's first couple dings.

    I've been contemplating drilling holes in my brake pedal arm. Lighter weight and easier to push down from what I hear.

    Sooner or later I need to stop being lazy and put a new pedal cover on my 97... sooner or later...
