So I am going to be doing a SAS in my 86 runner and want to do a brake upgrade. I am looking at using the IFS calipers on the solid axle with the FJ rotors or is there a better upgrade for the similar amount of cash??
Like the call girl said guys, "any input?"

i ended up building my own caliper brackets for the rear of my truck... i am using the v6 calipers with the fj rotors on all 4 corners...

i think i cut my caliper brackets out of 1/2 inch plate steel.. here are the pics from my build-up...

I think IFS calipers and FJ rotors are about as cheap as you can go. Considering all you would need is the rotors.

What are you using for ebrake then in the back?? Remember we all want to beware the SGI Nazi's. Have they been asked about the t-case e brake being acceptable? I love the idea of rear disc but just need to make sure it will be streetable as I don't do trailering.

Instead of welding to the axle, wouldn't be better to use the 4 longer bolt where the bearing house bolted to the axle?
Other brake thing:I bought a magazine called 4wd toyota owner.It is only about yotas .It has an article in it putting tundra calipers and disc on 3rd gen 4runners.I can scan it if somebody interested.

my ebrake is on the rear of the tcase... i got it from allpro offroad.. it has more stopping power than the stock ebrake system... it uses the original ebrake cable... i am not too sure if the one i got fits your tcase though... go to allpro and check..

E brake on the driveline should be OK. Cruisers have them this way OEM on some years.

Don't forget you might want to upgrade your master cylinder.

It's a good upgrade.

80 series land cruiser is what I use.

Marlin Crawler has what you want but I am not sure that you need it?? Maybe the 4runner has the bigger MC in it??

V6 ,master cylinders are bigger than the 4 cylinder and would be a good upgrade. I still have the one out of the 4runner from when i did my 1 ton master swap. It is only a few years old to from what i recall.

I never had a problem with the stock brakes and my stock master stopping the 4runner even with 38's on it.
