I was wondering if there is a "upgrade" for my 2017 yukon xl calipers? I tow my landscape trail (made in the late 70's built with 1/4" angle iron, beast of a trailer) and my 25' boat (7500lbs with trailer). Boat trailer as hydraulic assist brakes (weight of the boat pushing forward pushes a hydraulic piston, not sure what they call this) and landscape trailer has nothing. I have found solutions like "Powerstop z36 truck & tow brake upgrade kit review" and found threads that explain using a newer GM/Chevy caliper which are bigger than the older ones. As of this posting, I have not checked my vacuum pump system for defects or leaks. Yukon stops well enough with out towing. However, when towing I would like to "feel" more stopping power. Current brake hardware is from AutoZone. calipers are original, premium ceramic pads and heavy duty solid rotors.
