Wow that is strange.We had half dozen of that generation of trucks although all were manual brakes and they stopped just fine.Even the earlier models that were drum\drum did fine.I'm assuming yours is disc\drum d52 in front and 11x2 out back.Are you sure vacumn line to booster is not collapsed.Just sounds like something with power assist.I have seen a big difference in the brake lining material but mostly on later models that went semi metallic or ceramic.I do alot of brake work and see sometimes the friction compound just doesn't stop well so I go to a different brand.My best luck was with Bendix.
