    adding hydroboost

    Need to add a hydroboost to my rig. right now I just have manual master cyl, ( the 4 wheel disc Vette one ) brakes stop but I can also drive through them easy and the pedal goes to the floor almost. I have full hydro steering currently, anyone plume a hydroboost into a full hydro steering system?

    Why not put a vacuum booster on it? What's it going on?

    If you don`t already have a hydroboost I would trade you one for your manuel cylinder.

    I already have a hydroboost, don't have a vacuum booster. As far as whats going on, the brakes do not work as good as I would like them to work. I hate a soft pedal or one that goes almost to the floor before stopping.

    adding hydroboost

    I'll get the info when I get home. It's the stock booster for my 88 yj, and an e350 master cylinder. Worked great on disc/drum, and works equally well on my disc/disc setup now. With my cj I used the stock booster and the corvette MC, never did get a good feeling pedal on it.

    ok, the 88 is a single diaphram IIRC? the 95 is a dual. Still doing discovery on this... sigh...

    Yessir that is correct. I read of some issues using the dual diaphragm and different MC and hood interference.
