Well after 4 new Michelin A/T2's, 4 new ARE 5 Star wheels, 4 new calipers, all new pads, rotors turned and one section of brake line replaced, 2 line flushes, finally rolling smooth and stopping straight. Also flushed the radiator and replaced the radiator hoses. I'll be heading out for the first campout this coming 3 day weekend!!!!

You asked about shocks. Two things that helped my 2wd 95. Front stabilizer bar bushings (replace with synthetic rubber) and bilstein shocks. The shocks are great. You can find them online for ~$275 or so.....Both are pretty easy DIY projects.
Have fun!
