Talking Have been looking but...

I can not seem to find the answers to some questions I've had over the past couple of weeks.

So, lets just start at the begining..
I want to do a tune up on the trep, but I wanted new wires and plugs. The plug part I can handle. The should be the Champion Copper or the Bosch Platinum 1's. Please correct me here if I am wrong. I want to get a set of wires that have low(not sure if I'm saying this right or not), ok something that gives me little to no feed back with my stereo. I have a small buzzing when playing something loud or listining to talk radio.

I'm also having this annoying a$$ squel when applying the breaks. I've checked over the brakes they seem to be good. Good pad wear and rotor still in good shape. I really have not been able to figure out what the squel is so I decided(haven't told the wife yet). But I decided to get a bigger if they have them, rotors and say a four piston caliper up front and a 2/dual piston set in the rear. Has anyone run a break setup like this before and what was the cost of something like this and where did you get them from?

I also want/would love to have a set of performance shocks and struts. Something to give me a lower look and to greatly improve handling.

So to sum this all up...
I want to know what is the best set of wires I can buy is and what the majority of Trep owners use,
Has anyone done an aftermarket brake upgrade for both front and rear? Is there a set of performance shock and struts out there?

As usual THANKS for all the help.

Be the Change you want to See!

Just a quick question do you have four wheel discs and which brakes are squealing. If you have drums or newer breaks it is possible that the pads or shoes haven't properly seated. What I would recomend is pop the drums off (once again this is assuming you have rear drums) and take a piece of emery cloth to the edges of the shoes and just round the edges, not to much tho. You can also do this on the front pads.
As for the wirse I used to get this alot with my old van and it turns out it was a bad ground and my altenator was on it's way out.

Sorry, I was not specific in my explanation of brakes. it's the front drivers side that squealing like a SOB!
I have discs in front and drums in the rear. soon to be discs all the way around.

Yea then pop off the squealing brakes and inspect the pads for any road debris and lightly round the edges of them also.
