    89 FJ62 - where to get 92-94 4Runner caliper? PLEASE

    Finally ready to do this 4Runner caliper conversion on my FJ62. After first ordering the WRONG (1996) calipers last year, I want to be sure to get the RIGHT ones this time, pref. fully loaded.

    I was going to use the one Marlin advertises on their website, but now thet are described as "originally found on 1988-1995 V6 trucks". Don't I need specifically 92-94 4Runner calipers???

    If so, WHERE DO I GET 92-94 4Runner calipers???

    As always, THANKS a bunch!

    Couldn't you go to your local dealer, CDan or other parts store and ask for calipers for a 92, 93 or 94 4-runner and get them that way? :confused:

    :cheers:

    I ordered 93 V6 4x4 from autozone. They come in tomorrow so I can tell you then the actual AutoZone part number. I just purchased lines from MAF and the 1" MC from Marlin. Hopefully they will arive before the weekend and I can get them on!

    Mine were $84 loaded for the pair, plus core, from AutoZone.

    I got mine from the local auto parts wholesaler thru my mechanic. Try NAPA, or any big name auto parts store. Mine were also pre loaded.

    Thanks!

    Thanks all!

    Being an OEM fan, I suppose I've boxed myself into buying only Toyota parts. Please let me know how the aftermarket parts work out!

    I've had and an FJ80 MC and booster sitting here waiting for this job.

    Well, I test fitted today and they didn't fit. It looks like they will with a minor trimming of the dust shield. I won't know for sure until this weekend when i have time to trim this thing. I ordered loaded calipers from AutoZone for a '93 4Runner V6 4WD. that should get the correct thing. they are massive and I can't wait to get them on!

    Once the dust shields are trimmed, and it doesn't take much, they should bolt right up.

    there are a few that look like the brakes are brand new/perfect,,, like they just had a brake job before they rolled it etc,, one only has 35k miles on it,, other 67k,,,

    You have to trim less than an inch on each end of the caliper. I did mine with a hacksaw with it attached to the hub for holding it steady, took 15 minutes or less for all four cuts.

    It is my understanding that the ones from Napa etc are all OEM rebuilds. I got mine from Marlin and paid extra because I did not have to send in a core. I wanted everything on hand for my knuckle rebuild and disk-caliper replacement without having to go back to collect the core charge.

    If you get new rotors at the same time make sure to set the pads properly with 8-10 50mph to near stops. Then let them cool down by driving slowly with minimal braking before you park.

    Thanks all. Looks like I'll try the Napa calipers - why not if they are OEM rebuilds!?!
