Brake Booster Upgrade

I'm planning to use mid 80's GM booster but looks like it might hit intake on MPI system. If so will 92 S-10 booster work? Also read where pushrods need to be shortened, is this the one to MC or one to the bracket from the back of the booster? Also plan to use 79 firebird w/ 4 wheel discs MC but this one looks a lot like stock one except only deeper. Will this one hold enough fluid if I put discs on rear? I think jeepskate and jeeper2 have done this and I have read all the posts but still have a couple of questions. Thanks for any help and MERRY XMAS

Re: Brake Booster Upgrade

The '79 Firebird w/4 wheel discs is the correct one for 4-wheel discs on a CJ...probably not a good idea to do this until you install the rear discs though. I have an article scanned in on my web site that shows the GM booster mods...you have to cut & re-weld the rod on the booster and weld a little 'booger' onto the plunger that pushes on the master cylinder...you can get 'off-the-shelf' modded units from folks like M-P Brakes and Off-Again.
