corey... true. the newer IFS V6 calipers bolt on (at least they did with my 1982) and to gain anything from them it is recommended that you upgrade to the 1" bore master cylinder like robb said. for the rear you can get the '86+ larger shoes / drums / wheel cylinders or do the rear disk conversion this might be the link robb is looking for. this guy seems to have done a lot of trial and error and finally came up with something he was happy with... home.4x4wire.com/erik/4runner/brakes/ hope this helps! -michael
so here's my list of parts comming or are here already .
80 FJ80 vented rotors 83 toyota hubs (2 bolt style) so I dont have to use extended lug bolts 95 V6 Calipers with stock OE brake pads upgrade to braided SS flex lines T100 duel diaphram booster ... upgraded booster T100 Master cylinder 1.2" bore
First off the hub is "prepped" for the new rotor .. never-sieze is always a good idea
Rotor is put on , and bolted with the 2 bolts , as well as the studs replaced and "poped" in .. pre-packing all the bearings , makes things go quick once you get going .
inner bearing , and seal , installed .
then , time to put it back on the spindle .. with clean hands , "place" the rotor over the spindle , and "seat" the seal onto the spindle , then you can put the front bearing , shim/spacer , and the first nut
then you can tighten to "spec" (sorry , I have done this so often , I just do it by feel now .. )
next is the lock ring and second nut ..
when your installing these .. dont forget to bend over the "tangs " on the lock
now time to install the snap ring .. a 8MMX 1.25 will thread into the end of the axle .... pull out the axle , and install the snap ring .
hub selector is next . It only fits one way .. and can be challinging if you dont know how . There is a "tang" on the ingaging hub
it is installed on the "open" area of the hub , with NO key way .
