I'm guessing you had an 02-06 Avalanche - stock front brakes are awful. I've had my stock brakes to the floor slowing down before without a lot of success...unless not slowing down like you want and warping the rotors is considered success. Luckily it is a cheap upgrade to '07+ brakes and makes a huge difference.
As for the original topics, I'm thinking airbags might be a better upgrade to level the load.
