As the front brakes on most vehicles do most of the braking (75%) it may be better to upgrade the fronts rather than the rear - apart from changing the rear axle there is the handbrake mechanism, pipework, master cylinder, etc. Have you checked the condition of the calipers and wheel cylinders - also is the servo working correctly
I have heard of cases where the front pads become seized in their carriers - also when was the brake fluid last changed
