I have to pump up the rear brakes in order to get my rear brakes to work. Front D44 disk brakes work fine, but not the rear. I am using the stock proportioning valve with the adjting arm zip tied up. But still, I have to pump a few times to get pressure to the rear.

Anybody else experience this, do I need to use a diffvernt vavle?

I hear the SNORT guys talk of a larger Supra M/C that works great.... Maybe Crash will chime in here <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

I am using the stock ford drum brakes in the rear, and I am using the stock 94 4runner with abs M/C. I do have a supra master I could possibly try out though, but it is for disk brakes front and rear.

Your going to have to get rid of the drums the wheel cyl are taking to much fluid for your m/c to supply try converting to disk w/ about the same size caliper you have in the front. I wouldnt go much smaller than that size due to the rotating mass you have to stop. <IMG SRC="smilies/idea.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/idea.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/idea.gif" border="0">

Dang, I was afraid of that. Who makes a kit to convert it to disk, or can I just take the disk's off a newer truck

So what do you guys recommend for Dana 60's front and rear? My front has discs obviosly, but my rear has the drums on it. I havent put anything back together yet, is going disc in the rear really worth it or can I get by with the drums? I guess my question is, what Master cyl and booster should I go with? I still have my stock 84 4runner stuff on right now. I will be running 40's too.

Well, if you wanna stop 60's, then use a M/C that was ((gasp)) designed to stop 60's <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">

Like DSI said, F350 one is a good choice...

Ya think <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> . Is there any info on doing this? Do I just go to the parts store and say I need a 19?? F350 master? Or even a salvage yard? Im sure this cant bolt up, shizznit's never that easy for me. Thanks DRM.
