    I have them as well as rwdb.

    I use the same rotors calipers all around.

    Truck stops very very well.

    You can purchase the compents at napa, NOT brackets, for $200.

    So the brackets are very pricey. Making this an expensive kit.

    other than that no complaints......

    I have no Experience with that particular kit,
    But Its WAY Easier/Better/Stronger/Cheeper to go and find a Toy Minitruck Solid Axle, and Rip off Everything, then put the knuckles/Disk Brakes/Birfields/ Hubs onto your axle.. This upgrades your Birfields/Steering knuckles/ Hubs, ect.. pluss its all OEM Disk Brake stuff

    You can go one steep further and put on IFS Toyota Calipers w/Vented Land Cruiser Rotors..:cool:

    I would not call them junk....they are just another alternative to get to disc brakes up front...








    There is no difference between IFS calipers compared to Land Cruiser calipers, unless you source the V6 caliper, which would give you four equally sized pistons in each caliper, opposed to the two larger and two small configuration.

    I have that and it works fine but I got it before I knew about the mini truck brake swap and now have to change things again because I want stronger birfs.
