Gary decided it wasn't a good idea to ignore my brake issue any longer. 30min and an 80 booster later.... Who knew you could lock up 37s!!!

I took it for a test drive and it was scary how fast it would come to a stop. It is a super cool upgrade.

Mike, was anything unusual necessary to fit the 80 booster? I swapped to a mini-truck unit years ago, but alas, I feel like the current one is starting to leak.

The 80 booster, rod, and pedal linkage bolt up with 2 exceptions. The booster has to be mounted upside down and we shimmed it away from the firewall to clear one bolt on the firewall I was too lazy to clearance. The clutch master is not stock so that was another reason we shimmed it. We could have nudged it over if needed.

The trip was good and the truck ran really well. The suspension is toast!
