    Up grading first gen brakes to second gen. brakes

    I'm restoring my 87 2dr 2wd blazer for a daily driver, auto with 3.4 engine,dynomax cat back. I just installed the 2000 7.6 disc brake rear and with a little research found out the 2000 front disc can be swapped. Just wondered if anyone use the master cyl and vacuum booster from a second gen. I also have a first gen with a sbc that's getting a disc brake 8.5 rear and the LS1 front brakes ...but that's another project.

    I've got a rear out of an 02 with disc and have been running my stock master and booster. I did pull apart the internal valve in the prop valve. I'll be swapping to 98+ front brakes as my nmom st project. you should be fine running the stock master

    Just thought if they were a direct fit it wouldn't hurt to upgrade with the newer parts. It probably won't be hard to figure out by comparing them and taking a few measurements.

    From what I remember, it does not bolt up. I believe the booster rod has a different end for the brake pedal. The master doesn't work on the older booster either.

    I have 2nd gen blazer discs front and rear with the stock master and booster. Changed the proportion valve to a disc/disc. Works fine
