    Master cylinders

    Ok so, Its time for a new master cylinder for the 98 T/A. While stopped at stop light my car tends to creep forward and I have to keep bushing further down on the brake pedal. The pedal is hard at first but then tends to creep down slowly. I beleave these are sign of the internally seals of the master cylinder going bad. Also noticed small brake fluid leaking coming out the back of the master where it bolts to the brake booster. My question is. Are there any better replacment for the master cylinder other then the stock one??? I can get a stock one from the local parts store for around $100.00 bucks. Does anyone know of a better high performance one to go with other then stock??? Do any of the corvette masters bolt up to our cars? And if so are they better to replace our stock one's with??

    I'd probably just go with a stock replacement. I see no need to upgrade unless you upgrade the rest of the system.
