Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Pretty new to the hilux thing and I have just brought myself an RN30 1981 2wd long bes style side hilux, she's a good ol girl but needs a bit of upgrading in some areas.

1. It has drum brakes in all 4 corners and after owning it for a while now I have bled the brakes and changed shoes etc amd and t still feels like garage, I would like to upgrades to some disks in the front , question : is there anyone out there whos has swapped out theirs and how interchangeable are hilux parts?

From what I have seen they dont look that different at all.

I have a lovely worked 18rg to go in place of the 18rc so I feel that thos swap would be more than a good idea ha!

Thanks in advance,

Ben

Just so you know, All brake mods and repowering > 120% OEM KW REQUIRE PRE-approval from licensing authority, and inspection when done. May require certification too. Do NOT start without approval in principle in writing. Un-approved mods can cost CTP cover, which may have nasty consequences. Be careful, and getting an engineers certificate is $$$$$$. Read the legals first-download & understand the document VSB 14. (Vehicle Standards Bulletin) & apropriate subsections.

Moderators, make VSB's a sticky?

Hi Manxman,

Yeah i am very well aware of what could happen if the components i have modified/installed are not engineered correctly and my insurance provider has been notified.

I have spoken to my engineer and he was the one that recommended the said OEM upgrade, he has signed of on a lot of my work before i.e full engine swaps (with brake upgrades to suit) through to suspension and diff upgrades.

Thanks for your input mate = D
