Suspension and brake questions

Ok hopefully you guys can help me diagnose this. I have a 2000 CC SB with 135,xxx and an auto. Question # 1- I have a really stiff brake pedal, I put drilled and slotted rotors on it along with ceramic pads and new calipers. The truck has stopping power you just really need to use some leg to get it. I don't know what it is; could it be the master cylinder? Booster maybe? IDK. Question #2-when sitting in the passenger seat you can feel a rattle come through the floor board; it feels like itís coming from the suspension. However you can't feel it from the driver's side. I know this because I rode in my passenger seat for the first time in a long time the other night (a ride home from the bar). I think it maybe ball joints or maybe even a back shock, or tower? I'm horrible at diagnostics; I usually just start replacing stuff until I find the problem, so if you guys could give me a starting point you would save me a lot of time and money! Thanks, Mike
