    this thread is quite simple ...
    whats needed for the hilux 4 pot upgrade?

    obviously the calipers

    what disk's do you use for it, are they a fully floating disk or disk & hub assembly?
    will you need a better brake master cylinder? ( mines already upgraded but for all those who's arnt)
    who can you get the caliper brackets from or have you had some made?
    what struts are you running them on?
    what size wheels will you need to clear them. the standard hilux wheel is a 15" rim ... but can you fit 14''s?

    how many different ways can this upgrade be done

    what was your total cost doing this.

    where are good places to get the required parts?

    alright if anyone can see anything else that should be added to the list let me know other wise go nuts and let us know what you got.

    ok

    XT130 Struts and Hubs
    Peugot 604 Discs (DBA272 or equiv.) machined down to 266mm in diameter
    Hilux/Landcruiser 4-spot Calipers (LN106)

    the calipers will bolt straight to the corona strut
