Chevy brakes are self-adjusting.

What would your advice do for long-term braking?

Those "self adjusters" have a way of not really adjusting themselves over time. Both my Chevy Astro and my current Dodge van have them. I've always found that brake performance will improve with adjusting those star adjusters as described before.
