I read somewhere (I thought it was here) that to balance stopping pressure (front to rear) you “swap” wheel cylinders front to rear and rear to front. 1 question: Is this correct, seems like a big difference, vs. just putting front cylinders on the rear?

I have always just backed off the front brake adjustment to very low so the back brakes lock up first. The rear brakes I kept adjusted to the correct adjustment.
Davec11, did you swap cylenders!!! What is your take!

Swapped and adjusted helped me a lot..

Next step is the weave pads.

Eric Solorzano turned us on to the brass-impregnated brake pads. We swear by them. They take a little bit to warm up, but once they're warm, they're noticeably better than standard pads.

Did I actually just give technical advice without being snarky? This will not stand!
