Series III brake upgrades

Hi,
I am looking to upgrade the braking on my series III. I have the power brake pedal box for series III, but have not decided what servo and and master cylinder to use yet. I plan on using some coil axels with disc brakes at each corner so I want to make sure I can move enough fluid. So can I use a defender unit? or should I stick with a series set up?

Thanks for the input

You can use the late2a and s3 power brake set up. I've seen several of these with disc brake upgrades on series axles. Some people also have run hydroboost set ups too. This is what I'm doing on my rig. I used a s3 pedal tower, a hydroboost unit from an escalade and a late 80 blazer master cylinder. This route requires a small amount of fabrication and power steering pump too, but its a great reason to ad power steering at the same time.

On my series I run the stock s3 power setup with the aftermarket replacement master cylinder from rovers down south. It pushes the toyota disc brakes I run just fine.

Thanks for the input guys, I will probably just go with the stock series III power set up for now. Enjoying the build thread Dan.
