I have an 00 and it has drum brakes. A friend has an 01 with disk brakes. I would look into installing new axle seals while it is on the bench. I bought Spicer seals for the front from Denny's drive shaft. He was good to deal with. I should have bought the correct installer that fits the seals instead of using generic seal installers. Change the brakes and cylinders then at least check the backlash so you don't have to go back in. Fix your exhaust. It helped cause your PPM.
My friends and I are getting old but ride our bicycles between 4,000 & 6,000 mi/year. We listen to exhausts of vehicles approaching from behind and have concluded "the louder the exhaust, the bigger the aszhole. No one thinks your loud exhaust is cool other than you. It's more of "all show and no go".
2000 LWB, Quad Cab, 4x4, NV4500, AirDog, Gauges, Thuren Track Bar, Lost crappy AGR and A1-Cardone steering boxes. RedHead is the best so far but truck has stopped returning to center. Hopefully, I'll get to it soon.
