    I emailed them with the measurements that I wanted them made and they made them to what I wanted. Their website has a set measurement but I wanted bigger decals and all curved. I paid like $12.60 shipped to my door for 8 front caliper decals and 8 rear caliper decals. I haven't swapped my rears yet

    HI saw this tread and am planning on switching over to that Master cylinder. I plan on doing the dual piston Blazer brake upgrade. I`d like to know how the pedal feels. Is it firmer or a little on the soft side ?

    Needing to do a master on my car anyway so this looks like a cool upgrade. I eventually want to do the blazer spindles too so I'm sure it all helps.

    I have the same master, actually the pedal feels really good. Not sure what prop valve op used, i used a cheapo disc/disc valve that everyone sells.

    Only thing that sucks is the factory master sat at an angle so this one tilts up a little in the front just looks strange

    What is the original origin of the master cylinder so I can get on rockauto and order one lol love the upgrade even if just for the cap. Those brakes look great and those decals really give me an idea for my car

    Make sure you ONLY order that part number There are 2 different masters for these listed cars.

    The one listed here is the correct one with the correct fitting sizes.

    A couple of questions about this upgrade, is there any advantage to grabbing a kit for G-body spindles, like Umi Perfromance's, over using S10 spindles and hubs? And will the stock master work if you leave the rear drums?
