Default What are some good upgrades for my 90 D150?

I'm looking to fit my truck with better parts than it currently has on it, so I'm checking to see what you guys consider the good stuff.

In other words, what are good brakes for it, and what are the best overall shocks and those kinds of things.

Thanks guys.

what are you using the truck for? most of the time normal drums and rotors are fine. just have to get quality pad and shoes. since it is a truck cheap monroe gas magnum shocks would probably be fine.

now if you got money to waste you could upgrade to rear disk brakes.

I only intend to use it for normal truck use. Driving on the street only. Occasionally hauling things in the bed, and towing if someone needs it. I won't be going off road or anything like that, so it doesn't need 9 feet of clearance and all that.
