Just bought a 86 cj7 a few weeks ago. The brakes are terrible, no way I could stop in a hurry if someone pulled out or whatever. Downshifting actually stops it better
My mechanic is looking it over and plans to replace the currently leaking master cyl. He thinks the one in their now is OEM or similar spec and looks to him to be a drum brake style master cyl
He notes that disc brake conversion kits for these do not spec a new or diff type master cyl and a mech buddy of him who works at a 4x4 shop also told him to continue with OEM style master cyl, not upgrade to a disc style one?
I was told when I bought it from a jeep shop that I would have to learn to live with sh**tty brakes on a CJ7, but it seems that something can be done?
