88 Suburban Master Cylinder Rear Disc Conversion

I have a '88 4wd Suburban here that a customer did a rear disc brake conversion on. Everything works great except for to much pedal travel due to the stock master cylinder.

Does anybody know of a different m/c I could install that will push more fluid? I didn't know if any of the newer m/c's would bolt on from a truck with rear disc. Maybe even a corvette m/c?

I searched and didn't find anything. Thanks for the help!!!

Maybe a non-hydro boost system from a 1-ton???

Off Road Unlimited has there rear wheel disc kit and it comes with an upgraded master cylinder. I believe it's just a 3/4-1 ton unit. May want to check it out and see what master cylinder they use. If you buy it from them your going to pay 3 arms and 5.5 legs [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
