Is there a easy way to put bigger brakes on a 1992 F-150? Will F-250 brakes swap onto stock spindles? We have plenty of go but not enough whoa. Thanks BIGG C

I'm with Joe. Can't even image all the headaches, time, and money it would take to convert the 150 to a 250 set up.

Assuming you don't have them already,trailer brakes would be a much easier and cheaper route. They may also come in handy if for some reason that trailer starts whipping around.

And on occasion, I push on the trailer brake button & save my truck brakes (more out of just something to do than actual benefit )

You have to change the front end I-beams, spindles, hubs, brakes and wheels. On the rear you must replace the whole housing. The last thing is you will need to go to the 3/4 ton master cylinder (if it is different, I have found a few that were not) and Valve assy. for the 3/4 ton.

Trailer brakes are under $300.
