    I'm thinking of keeping the hydro brakes on the burb but after looking at em, I kinda want to add em to the willys now. has anyone put hydro brakes on a 4 wheel disc set up with hydro-assist steering?

    I know I should leave em both alone but i want to the jeep to be fully equiped (well minus the 60 front)

    I've done it and it works fine. I don't know if it was truely neccessary, but I also put an adjustable prop. valve in the rear brake line right by the M/C.

    I was told that because I've got the hydro boost brakes that my steering would be too slow with a larger ram, so I'm using a 1 3/4" ram and it seems perfect. I am runing a trans cooler as a power steering cooler and synthetic PS fluid.
