I know everything else will work, but what about the brakes? The F150 has 11 1/32" drums in the rear and my current 8.8 has 10" drums. Will this cause any braking problems? and if so, how would I fix them?

it may cause a little more braking power to the rear.if your truck is weighted properly in the rear it probably wont even notice the larger brake. if it does cause the rear brakes to lock up it could easily be cured with an adjustable proportioning valve inline to the rear brakes.

It will cause problems right out the gate. Having smalling brakes up front is just asking for trouble. It is a great way to spin out at high speed. I recommend that you get a larher set of disks for the front right off
