    I have a 74' fj40 and I am wanting to do a disc conversion. The question I have is would it make more sense to do the conversion on my existing stock front end or swap front ends completely ? I can get my hands on a 1987 fj60 front axle but wasnt sure what was a better idea or cost effective...

    64 fj40 disc brake conversion

    Just purchased a 64 fj40 with SBC and power steering already done. But with the plan to run 33's or bigger the brakes also have to be done. Based on my research so far on this site it looks like the best option is to source a complete front axle assembly from a 74-79 fj60 that already has discs...

    Stock FJ40 disc brake axle vs FJ60 disc conversion

    So this really isn't a how to question, more of an opinion request.... After reading until my eyes bulged out about disc brake conversions (I have a '66 FJ40 with ball and claw) I decided just to hunt down a stock disc axle. I recently placed my order for a stock FJ40 disc brake axle for about...

    Wanted  Fj40 front axle housing for disc brake conversion

    I have a '66 FJ40 with the old ball and claw setup but want to do a disc conversion on the front. Looking for a later model 40 housing that can be converted or an axle already with discs in or around Arizona, or at least reasonable enough to ship. Thanks in advance, Nick

    Help me identify this disc brake conversion

    This is a 1976 General Market (non-U.S.) FJ43. It would have come with drum brakes all around. Someone somewhere along the way converted it to disc brakes up front. Can anyone help me identify which disc brake conversion this is based on these pictures? Looks like Toyota parts to me. I'd like...
