Brake Booster question

I'm going to purchase a new booster/master cylinder setup for my 72 C10 pickup for more clearance to my 4.8 LS and to clean up the engine compartment a bit. I'm going to buy this one https://www.performanceonline.com/19...ster-Cylinder/

What I need to know is they have a 9 inch single and an 8 inch dual booster as choices. Is there a benefit of one over the other and do they mount the same way? An 8" will give me more clearance so that's probably the path that I take but just wanted to understand the ins and outs of a single vs a dual booster.

Thanks

Re: Brake Booster question

The dual 8" is a better choice, here's some good info on boosters:

Re: Brake Booster question

I did find that web sight after posting my question.

I have disc/drum setup so per their advice I went with the 9" single.

Thanks
