ABS brakes, S10 to 54 Chevy P/up

Hi, I'm putting my truck body on a 98 S10 truck frame, I want to use the abs brakes that came on the S10 but the only room for the controller is under the drivers floor, about 2' lower than the master cylinder. Will this work???

I have no idea if it will work, but my guess is yes. The abs in C4 Corvettes is mounted below the master cylinder elevation.

You could use a under floorboard master cylinder if you are overly concerned?

A lot of factory abs units were mounted under the car so I dont think you will have any issues.
