    I am just about to put my 3/4 ton D44 fron in. I already put the 14FF rear in. The truck is a 1/2 truck s owill I need a new master cylinder for the new 3/4 ton stuff? So far it's not too bad with teh bigger rear but will the front hurt more?

    nope don't have to change anything. the front calipers are pretty much the same ones as the 1/2 ton ones. and the rear wheel cylinders are only a little bigger but not enought to make a difference.

    I have 1 ton axles and a 1/2 ton master and it stops better then it did with the 1/2 ton axles. So you should be fine.
