manual brakes or brake booster??


New Member
My brake booster has a vacum leak. Im trying to decide if I should go to the manual brakes or buy a new brake booster. I drive my car about 3 times a week around town and an hour and a half down the interstate to louisville ky about 3 times a month so its not a daily driver but it is a cruising car. Should I fix my brake booster or switch over to manual brakes???

For a cruiser just swap the booster, it's less work and it will keep some comfort. Manual brakes aren't exactly street friendly. Not to say tons of people don't run them but the booster is more suitable.
