you will need to go and measure the one on your car, to see the length that you need. let me find a post that might help you

woah. don't assume it'* the master cylinder just because your fluid is low.. it could be a number of other things as well. Is your brake pedal taking an excessive amount of travel to make the brakes engage now (comparing to how they felt previously)

Yes Beck needs to see that the MC is leaking first, I would suspect this is the case
