ATTN: Vancopbs or other brake experts

I've done a ton of searching both on here and on PBB, and have not found a definite answer.

I've just added rear disk brakes to my YJ, and would like to know what booster/mc combo to run and what is needed to install them. My current setup is as follows:

Front waggy 44 stock waggy calipers
Rear scout 44 with mid 70's chevy calipers (same as waggy)
36" tires

I currently have the stock booster/mc, but I think the mc is bad (leaking out the back. Since I have to replace it, I want to upgrade it at the same time. I really would like brakes that would send me through the windshield. Any help with exact applications would be appreciated. I was thinking of a dual diaphram booster as well. This all has to fit in the stock YJ location as I have my clutch MC right next to/behind the booster. Thanks for any help.....

retail for the master, but junkyard for the booster depending on price

Re: ATTN: Vancopbs or other brake experts

You're better off just keeping your booster then. Use a Ford truck master.

Bendix Number 12007 is an 1 1/16th Bore.

Bendix Number 12008 is a 1 1/8th Bore.

You'd probably be better off with the 1 1/16th bore.

I sell a Booster and master cylinder kit. Using a Duel diaphram booster and 1 1/8 master that will give you 50% more power then you have now and bring the pedal back up to original. I charge 400.00 for that set up (Unless you're going to Moab I will have specials there).
