Brake Booster

Will a brake booster, M/C unit off a 1990 YJ work for the cj upgrade swap. I have read that it is the only year that won't work from some forums, but busted jeep's site didn't say anything about it not working.

Please let me know if it will work or not. My local junkyard has one for cheap, and i need to know if it will work!

It will work, but you'll need to bend the lines around to the other side of the M/C.
YJ master cylinders have the brake lines on the opposite side as CJ's.

You may need an adjustable push-rod if your brakes seem spongy. You can buy them on line.
I used to own two CJ's...Perhaps a 3rd is in the future?
