48 Chevy Pickup Front/Rear Disk Question

I have a 48 Chevy on a G body chassis that I added a Ford Explorer 8.8 rear axle to. I'm going to be running front / rear disk, but was wondering if I could go with a standard S-10 master cylinder, power booster, and proportioning valve.

A later model S10 also have a disc-disc MC. I put a S10 Extreme rear end in my 92 S10 and put the donor MC in it.

Thanks for the help. I'm thinking of going with a remanufactured Cardone 50-1200
