Chevy brakes

My Chevy Cheyenne 3500 has never had good braking. I have the light one ton (9000 gvw). My current gross weight, with tools and equip. is 7300 lbs. Is there an after market front rotor/pad combo that will increase the braking?

Are you having problems with it fading as you brake?

no…I just don’t have the stopping power I’d like. the front brakes have about 40% left so I’m trying to plan ahead.
