    Just did a d60 conversion. Now my brakes are spongy as can be. Do I need to use a bigger master cylinder? Anyone who has any insight help me out [​IMG]!
    Thanks,
    Mike

    i did a d60 swap a few weeks back and my brakes are working great. i would check the usual suspects, pads, fluid level, etc. they are 1 ton brakes should work great. Mine do...i can stop on a dime! [​IMG]

    Also did the D60 swap a few months ago and had that problem.........only thing that worked for me is POWER BLEEDING. Had it done at a dealership for $60, major difference after that. 4X shops can do it too.

    Everything is new, I have access to a power bleeder, That will be my next task. I was pretty sure we had all the air out of them but the power bleeder is pretty amazing with that kind of stuff[​IMG]. Thanks for the advice guys.
