Default Brakes question please help

Alright boys, all I want to know is how hard is it to brake without the booster.
97 hardbody making room for the 20s laying frame. Wondering if I delete the booster how hard it will be to come to a stop?

Search geo booster. I believe that was a replacement to fit the 20's.

In my datsun with 4 wheel drum brakes and no booster you better make a damn plan to stop. I don’t really know how to quantify how much harder it is to stop than a hardbody but it’s certainly noticeable.

Lol thanks Bama honestly iam just trying to cut some corners and hurry up and get this thing back on the road. Have to weld the tubs all up and notice the brake booster wouldn’t work so instead of modifying it I figure just try it with out the booster
Plus... iam thinking I’ll make my even have enough room for 22s
And if that’s the case then the booster is def gone

its fucking hard. i used to drive a shop truck that had no booster and youd either need a plan to stop like above or the place of mind to PULL on the steering wheel with your ass off the seat, in the air, literally standing on the brakes in anything short of a well planned stop.

Street is RIGHT. Forget about Ricky Racing around town if you delete the booster. Your main problem will be not rear-ending people if you have to make a sudden stop. And it happens...

I don't know if this affects anything, but your 97 has a rear wheel ABS system as well. I've had a booster go out on me. You can definitely tell when that happens, and it ain't good.

So what’s the deal with the booster. I can keep the master cylinder but just need a smaller booster? I’ve heard u can use the Nissan pulser and the geo, will both bolt right up to the Hardbody’s M/C
