    Changing entire brake system and using FJ80's brake booster to FJ62

    I have 1988 FJ62 and she have front/rear drum brake.
    They work well until a few days and still much shoe remains but because of master cylinder faults and high price of new master cylinder, I think will go to front disc brake.
    I bought front knuckle assy from US version of 86 FJ60 and all needed parts from FJ62 already.
    Here's part list.
    1. Right/Left knuckle out assy. from FJ60
    2. Brake booster from FJ62
    3. Master cylinder from FJ62
    4. Proportioning valve from FJ60
    5. Steel Beake lines from FJ60

    I think it might not difficult conversion but dirty and greasy :)
    Originally, my FJ62 have no LSPV or other conventional proportioning valve that I'll use FJ60's proportioning valve and brake lines.

    So it will be changed to same with US FJ62's brake system only except proportioning valve instead of LSPV after finishing this work.

    I'll change all bearings, seals and gaskets.
    If there is any point which I must pay more attention, please tell me freely.

    And at this time, I have question.
    One of my friend can give me a brake booster from 91 FJ80 that can I use that with this configuration ?

    I want this configuration.
    FJ80's brake booster + FJ62's master cylinder + FJ60's proportioning valve

    He said that donor FJ80 was F disc / R drum without ABS that booster could be used with same configuration. But I don't know..

    If anyone knows about this please inform me.

    Oh, Min Seok
