I've done a lot of reading the last few days, and really have not been able to come up with a good answer.

I recently acquired a new ride, Dana 60's front and rear.

Front- 1 ton dual piston calipers
Rear- large GM single pistons
Master- Dual Willwood 7/8
Lines- -3 AN throughout

The pedal has the soft feel I have been reading about, I have bleed the brakes (ran at least 2 quarts of fluid through) with no change. It just does not have good stopping power to me. On 39's, slamming the pedal with all I have in 2wd the rear tries to lock up, the fronts do not. It takes an extreme amount of leg power to hold it on a steep hill.

What can i do to get more braking from this setup? Going to a smaller master would seem to increase pedal travel more, which already has quite a bit of travel. Going to change pads in the morning (going to use the cheapest Vato-Zones they have - as a suggestion I found in one thread). Other than that I'm lost! No room for a booster of any type at this time.
