    I would do it in pieces. It varies from truck to truck.

    Set the rotors and hubs up, and plumb and install the calipers, and see how it brakes.

    On my K5 with rear disc I'm using the stock vacuum booster and stock master cylinder, and she'll hold in Hi Or Lo, and only starts to get past the brakes in low-low on my doubler unless I stand on the pedal.

    On my sixpack (crewcab, dually) with rear disc I have hydroboost and the P30 master, variable prop valve, etc etc, as I was having problems and threw money at it. I'm not convinced, in the end, that it was necessary... point being, try it first.

    My blazer is an 89 and i just did the disc swap and nothing else, works perfect. Been running it for 5 years now with no problems.
