Try using a proportioning valve, or a bigger master cylinder? I used one from a Dodge it's about twice the size of the little Nissan one and it's worked great.

Ive got the powerstop crossdrilled front rotors, and love em! Im going to steel braided lines this winter at some point. I have the same problem you do with spongy pedal. Truck still stops fine, but doesnt have the brake pedal feel I want. Im hoping the lines will help this somewhat. What model master cylinder did you use chris? (out of what dodge vehicle?) Was this a straight swap, or were there other neccessary modifications?

I'll check out the part No. and get back to you, it's been awhile so I can't remember if it was from a Ram or a Dakota, but it bolted right-up no problem.

Part No. 23805-T for the top, and 23805-B for the Bottom, sorry but I can remember if it was from a Ram or a Dakota like I said it's been about a year and a half or so. Call up a dodge dealer or parts store they should be able to cross-reference the part No.'s. I just hope the No's aren't different in the US???
Hope this helps!

I forgot to ask you earlier, do you not find that the cross-drilled rotors tend to clogg-up with mud etc. I was thinking about getting a set of the Bare racing drilled rotors, but most of the guy's I taked to said they were great on the street but not so good for off-roading? I'm interested to hear your experiences with these!

Chris,
They do rather well, the holes are really not that large, so even if they did trap a little mud, they still work fine. I havent done much four wheeling since I got them put in a few months back, but the last time i went it was muddy, and they did great. Thanks alot for getting me those part #s. I might check into that at some point. You ever find any dual t-case setups for yours yet? Would love to see a pic of yours with the 35's too..drop me an email at [email protected] Thanks man, take it easy

Happy Trails
Wade

Thanks for the info, I was always curious about those rotors? Nope nothing on the dual case yet I've had to put it on the back burner for awhile so I can finish some other projects. I have the tires, just need to trim the fenders a bit, so I can wheel with them. They fit fine for the street, but not for wheeling just yet. I don't need to trim much, but then again there ain't much to trim as you well know. I should be heading down to Walker Valley in the next week or so to test the new treads and I'll try to get a picture for ya.
Have a good one!
