    Application info:
    '91 1500 SC-LB, undergoing a SFA swap. Daily driver, mostly street use, probably going to use 33" tires (possibility of 35's but not likely).

    Would it be worth while for me to use 3/4 ton brakes and have to get new wheels, or for my purposes would the 1/2 ton stuff be dandy? I've noticed the 3/4 ton stuff is a fair amount bigger (and considerably more expesive!). So would it be worth it for my application is really what this comes down to. Also, in addition to higher part costs I also would need new wheels as 1/2 ton ford/dodge stuff would let me use my current wheels. THanks,

    <font color="green"> On 33s the 1/2 ton stuff would be fine. The 3/4 ton chevy calipers are the same anyways, the rotor is just a hair bigger. </font color>
