Well anything from 96-04 is hydroboost... If I had a Fox I'd just run manual brakes with the Max Motorsports kit. No clutter, functional, actually works fine for the street, not complicated.

How do I like the hydroboost? Works fine. Its not some sort of super brakes or anything. I don't like how big it is in the engine bay and how its tied to the power steering but it is what it is.

Question is what do you expect and why would you switch?

What are you looking for?

Not very much at all if you get the right kit. The Max Motorsports kit has a redesigned brake pedal with the pivot point moved which creates a lot more leverage to push on so its hardly any harder than a power brake setup.

Since you have a Fox, its almost a no brainer to go with the MM manual brake kit or just leave the stock power brake setup in there.

Also if you are still on stock fox brakes, do a 5 lug swap front and back and Cobra brakes on all 4 corners if you have not already. No amount of work is going to make the fox brakes ok, they are terrible.
