I’m doing the v6 caliper swap on my 40. Calipers in question are from a 1995 4 runner SR5 (equal size pistons).

I know I need to grind the fins to get the wheels to fit. Is this enough? Pictures show caliper before grinding and one after…

Any details on this swap? I’d like to swap my fronts; ‘79 cruiser — just did a rear caliper upgrade to disc brakes
 
Farmboy- swap is v6 sr5 4Runner calipers from a 1995. Requires backing plate trimming or backing plate eliminator kit (what I used).

Also requires grinding down of cooling fins or wheel spacers to fit stock steelies.

Is the swap a decent upgrade from stock ‘79 calipers? Better performance?
