CJ7 brakes and disc conversion, poor performance
Myself and my mech. could use some input on my CJ7. The brakes are terrible, I just bought it a few weeks ago from a jeep shop who told me 'that is how brakes are on a cj7'. I have my mech looking at it this week and he found the master cyl leaking and plans to replace that but was inclined to put a diff type in there.
It has a disc brake conversion and my mech feels like the OEM style master cyl for drum brakes may be part of the problem. However, he notes that conversion kits do not spec a new master cyl typer and he also talked with a buddy at a 4x4 shop who also told him to stick with an OEM style master cyl
