    I'm tired of my brakes not being up to par, it seems like lately something is always going wrong with them. So I'm planning on a major upgrade. So far I just ordered the parts for a rear disc brake swap on my 14FF, keep in mind I have a 3/4 ton 10 bolt. I want to upgrade to a 1 ton Master Cylinder, would this be a direct bolt in if I were to order one for a 1 ton of the same year? If not would I need the booster to make it a direct bolt in? Also I was looking around at proportioning valves and they make some for 1 tons that include 4 wheel disc brakes. Would this be at all beneficial?
