After nearly a year in the R&D phase, I am SUPER EXCITED to announce my Rear Disc Conversion kit for 79-95 Toyotas!! Enjoy introductory promotional pricing while the first batch lasts!

 

Backstory - I bought an '84 with homemade rear discs. They were rusted beyond saving and needed several improvements, so, I decided to try replicating them. I quickly realized no matter what I did, they wouldn't work with my 15" steel 4.5" backspaced wheels. After realizing several shortcomings with this setup, and being blown away by the overpriced kits on the market, I decided to start from scratch. I coudln't be happier with the end results.

 

-This kit will fit both the earlier axles with smaller hub diameter as well as the larger Ø thru 1995. The smaller Ø hubs simply require a hub ring from somewhere like Summit Racing.

-The rotors, calipers, pads, and hoses ALL FIT WITHOUT MODIFICATION! No need to go thru me for these parts - that would just add lots of unecessary expense with extra shipping and me marking things up. Notice how lots of other kits on the market require you to buy unnamed pads only from them, or rely on them for replacement "custom" rotors. With my kit, you can walk into any autoparts store and get rotors/calipers/pads. I only paid $317 for e-coated rotors, zinc'd calipers, pads, & stainless hoses, all brand new.

 

-I found the rotor/caliper combination to fit a 15" 4.5" BS steel wheel. No other rear disc kit on the market accomdates this setup. I had to seive thru dozens of rotors and calipers to find this combo, but it was worth it! This means no wheel spacers. And you can tuck your 33x10.50's inside your fenders! The rotors are considered "big" in terms of diameter, which means more stopping power.They're also vented, whereas lots of kits use solid rotors. Drilled & slotted are also available if that's your thing. An e-coated rotor is only about $30 to your door!! If you have warrantable problems with the caliper/rotor, you can deal directly with your parts store instead of me.

 

-Nothing special gets pressed on. The brackets simply bolt on over the supplied bearing-cap studs. And the rotors slide over the lug studs like any modern vehicle. No special lug studs required, as the rotor is the same thickness as the drum backing plate it replaces. This makes servicing your brakes multitudes easier than any other kit on the market.

 

-No welding required. The new brackets have tabs for your hose and hardline to connect thru. New brake hose clips are included.

 

-No janky bolts or nuts. This kit utilizes bearing-cap studs straight from the Toyota dealership. I've found the appropirate lengths to accomodate the bracket. The correct nuts are also supplied.

 

-AFFORDABLE! I can't stress enough how crazy I think the prices are for other kits. That's the reason I never did rear discs on my '86 - I just couldn't afford/justify it. Now, I've hopefully made them affordable.

-(4) Caliper mounting bolts.

 

-(2) Brake hose clips. Zinc plated.

 

You Supply:

 

-Loaded Calipers

-Hoses

 

The brackets might seem overly simple. But, it took me over a hundred hours of R&D to develop this kit. The time for trial & error was certainly not free. I appreciate your support if you choose to buy this kit. To prevent copycats, I will email you the rotor/caliper/hose part numbers upon purchase of this kit.

 

 

Things to note:

 

-You might decide to add a brake proportioning valve. I've run both with the factory LSPV as well as an aftermarket unit from Wilwood. I've had success with both.

 

-You'll have to come up with a different parking brake solution. T-case pinion brakes are popular. Line locks are another option. This is an affordable option.

 

-You'll need a fixture to disassemble and reassemble the axle assembly. You can create your own, like I did, or buy a premade tool, such as this one. I will offer base for FREE while supplies last, if you leave a note during checkout. Simply weld your tube to the baseplate and add something at the top to rest on your press. This is how I made my own fixture. Very simple & cheap.

 

I am currently in the process of creating the installation instructions. A hydrauluic press is required. Install time is 4-6 hours.
