Default brakes

as u all probibly know i have a dana 35 with disk brakes on my 94 jimmy. i hooked up the brake lines today and im not real thrilled about the feel of the pedal. so my question is what can i use as a master cyl. that will bolt in and give me the pressure i need for the rear disks?

The proportioning valve is probably the issue. Its sending a volume to the rear that was intended for drums.
