They do indeed suck. I put them on my 98.5 Dodge Ram. Marginally better stopping power and a worthless parking brake. Fine build bud!Oh and by the way (because folks always like debating this), Robert (RAK motorsports) and I argued for a while on the brakes for the rear axle. He wanted to do discs but the e-brakes with the eldorado brakes suck. So I voted for new drums. Robert had to use the backing plates off my of semi float and measure a bunch to get the right ebrake cables. But they work great!
Just explaining why I opted for drums.
