You will need a master cylinder & proportioning valve for a car with 4 wheel dics,also make sure the rod that connects to your brake pedal from the master cylinder has the correct geometry,and adjusment.

you will need a dis disc master and a disc disc proportioning valve or run the front system directly out of the front port of the master and run the rear directly out as well and put a adjustable valve in the front to rear brake line that will fix the pressure issues and make the brakes work propely. The pedal hight issue can only be resolved by making sure the rod length is correct under the dash and if you are running a power setup you will need to check the pushrod legth between the master and booster. you can check a 67 and newer service manual for the the rod adjustment under the dash as a starting point.
sources: Inlinetube.com has disc/disc propvalves and adjustable valves the disc/disc runs 99 i think and the adjustable runs around 50
