You might want to switch to disc brakes in the front. No surprises then.

After 78 the boosters are vac....

No real way of testing, I had installed mine and leaked like a siv! It slowed down alot after a month, but wound up using it as a core and got a new one.

True Todd...there is no way of testing a unit short of installing it to see if it leaks. No big deal. If it does, the core value far exceeds what you will pay for it at the bone yard.

Is $45 too much for the hydroboost setup? They refuse to just sell me the hydroboost and insist I take the entire brake system from stem to stern.

I paid $40 for mine to include the HB, lines and Master cylinder.. so that's not a bad price... others have paid less
