Default Bleeding brakes

Thinking about bleeding my brakes.
Is there a good brake fluid out there?

I wanna see if i can get more stopping power out of them. When i slam on them it doesn't completely stop. I sure it has never been changed in the 152k it has. My uncles crown vic stops on a dime but it also has all four disc brakes lol

out of adjustment drum brakes can give the pedeal a spongy feel, and it never hurts to flush out the old brake fluid
