I've got a complete 1977 fj40 disc front end sitting in my garage that I'll sell for half the price of the SOR kit. The only problem would be getting it to you depending on where you live (I'm in Houston).I'm ready to switch over to front disks. Any opinions on whose kit I should buy? 1975 FJ40.  oing it myself is possible, finding the parts and modifying is not. I need to buy the kit as complete as possible.
Thanks in advance
$400 doesn't seem out of line. From what I've seen complete cruiser disc front ends range from $350 that need rebuild, to around $500. Plus, the kits are $850 and you still are left with 6 spline birfs.I don't mean to be a party pooper, but $425 for a 77 axle? Is everything NEW on it? Notice that's what Woody is removing from his Cruiser.
As another data point, I went this route with my fj25:Mini Truck is the best deal for the $$$. I just finished my conversion and it was a lot easier than I thought. Here is a price list:
Knuckles '80 Toy truck=$100
'86 4Runner Calipers (loaded) @ NAPA=$61ea/$122 total
'81 LC FJ40 Rotors @ Kragen=$51ea/$102 total
'79 LC FJ40 Steering Arms=$100
Misc parts(brake lines, fluid, grease,rags,etc...)=$25
