 Post subject: What master cylinder for a cherokee 4 wheel disc conversion.
 Post Posted: Sun Dec 27, 2009 7:48 pm 
Does anyone know what master cylinder and proportioning valve I need. I have a 98 Cherokee sport and I am putting a dana 44 in the front and a ford 9" in the rear. The rear has drums and I am going to convert it to disc. I plan to get a second set of calipers and rotors for the 44 and use a custom made bracket that welds to the axle housing. I just need to know what master cylinder will work for this setup and what proportioning valve I will need.


Thank you in advance for your input!

you should be fine with your stock mastercylinder, and probably your proportioning valve. If you find that you want to adjust your braking, go to a race shop and buy an adjustable proportioning valve to tune it in where you want it.

lots of peps out there will say that you need to swap stuff out but anything that is the bigger xj master cylinder, ie 1995 and newer should work fine. i'm still running a stock 1995 xj master cylinder on my 95 with a d60 front with dual pistion calipers and an eaton (before they made a 14 bolt) with 1/2 chevy calipers and its work great! i've made no modifications to the master cylinder or proportioning valve...
