Mix and match brakes.
I'm 1/2 way through the D44 f/r swap right now, I've got the rear in, and the front is about 1 weekend away from being in, but I'm a little concerned about the brakes right now.
When I installd the 44rear, from the scout in my YJ, I noticed that the wheel cylinders were quite a bit bigger, but it wasn't too much of a problem. After being adjusted and bled, they seemed to work alright, although they were going a little far down on the peddle before getting resistance.
I assume when I put the front in my jeep, I'm going to get something similar, which isn't going to be good, because I'm running out of stroke as it is now.
So here's my question, how do I upgrade my YJ stuff.. if I need to? to correct this problem?
I assume its a matter of pushing more fluid, because the cylinders are bigger then before.. is this just a problem now because the back cylinders aren't a "match" for the front.. or is it because bigger cylinders mean more fluid needed?
I was looking at the upgrade with the E350 parts.. but I've also read lots of stuff on people doing the wrong upgrades and not getting the correct results..
Anyone wana chime in here and point me in the right direction?
