Adding Booster to Drum/Manual Brakes

Recommended Posts

Hey Pontiac people, 

I have a question. I have a 72 Lemans that has Manual Drum Brakes all around without a booster. 

Questions is can I install the booster I have(Came from 70 Lemans with Disk Brakes) onto my car? I thought that I would have to change the brake cylinders but when I go to find replacements, that don't specified if they are for a booster or not.. My apologies if this is a topic already, I tried to search but didn't find it.

Hi Fatony,

First of all, are you just looking at add the booster or convert the car to front disc brakes? Conversion to front disc brakes takes a few more parts, but having a booster is a good start. That's why I ask the question. What is your goal here? Maintain the stock drums or convert to front discs? I own a '72 Lemans with factory front discs.
