Right now you can't find any 95 Boosters, they are all bought from the same source A1Cardone or something like that, and they don't have any. The parts number (54-73153) are all the same at every major parts retailer. Anyway I was actually able to find one on Ebay. So try that route also if you can't find it anywhere.
I got a new Wagner from rockauto and they appear to be in stock now. Part numbers are different than yours also - MC131400

The link is to the master cylinder. Do they have the booster? It's too difficult for me to search with the cell.

Keep in mind if you can't find the '95 booster, you can make a TJ booster work too. There's a write up on here but I don't have it handy. I got the booster, MC, and prop valve from a guy with three wrecked TJ's building one good on for $35, it was actually a SUPER easy swap.

oops - sorry about that. I bought the booster and master from them last year. Here is a link to the booster.

And now I see the problem, the only option they offer now is to send yours in to be rebuilt

If you put in a Cardone booster make sure they have several in stock because it usually takes a few to get one that works.


The TJ booster can be made to work fairly easily but it does require some fab skills. The push rod from the pedal is considerably shorter and the length is very specific so if it's cut and lengthened it will need to be adjustable. Also, the hole in the end needs to be drilled out to 5/8.

hey there, i did the swap a month ago with a cardone, put it in, stops better, but with alot of pedal travel. what are the symptoms of a bad booster.. the pedal isnt super hard to push, and it desnt pull down on its own.

Captain, it sounds like you just need to adjust your linkage.

The ones I had were soft pedal and constantly feeling like it needed bleeding. The brakes would only hard stop if the pedal was all the way to the floor.

I'm not kidding about having 3 in a row that were bad, and not all from the same parts store.

Mr Blaine swapped in an OEM TJ booster for me on a custom bracket and it all work instantly.

I went through that too. If the push rod is too tight then the master can not fully release and the brakes will start to drag until you can't move. The correct adjustment is just touching, then back off about a 1/2 turn.

Excellent point. I sometimes forget not everyone has access to things needed for something like this. A lot people may not even have a drill bit larger than a 3/8's.

I had read previously about A1 boosters having issues and checked around for alternatives as I plan on doing this swap very soon. Just so everyone knows the ones that NAPA stocks are listed as being made exclusively by either ATE or Bendix- both of which I would trust. This is the route I plan on doing.
