1979 Pontiac Firebird Full Brake System Install

I'm rebuilding Firebird Formula with brand new brake system through out (booster, cylinder, lines etc) and am trying to find diagram for the brake lines around the front sub frame from the booster/cylinder to the splitter and on to the front discs. Any help would be great.

Replace brake booster , what parts to remove,

You will need to remove the fluid lines going to the booster, the vacuum line coming from the plenum also any electrical cables for the fluid level sensor etc. Then you remove the bolts securing the booster to the large round metal box its attached to. You can then either replace the booster or run a rebuild kit through the unit. A rebuild kit should be purchasable through your local parts shop.
