drum to disc swap

i have a 87 s10 with drum brake rearend. i purchased a rear disc brake rearend from a 2000 s10 blazer 2 wheel drive. is it gonna need more than just bolting it in and hooking up lines or am i going to have to have a special type proportioning valve or something else for it to work properly?

I'd be wondering if the master cylinder has enough volume to fill the rear caliper (calipers usually need more volume than wheel cylinders, right?). I'm not sure in the case of the S10, just trying to help you cover all the bases.
