Anyway, you've got 3/4 ton discs front and rear on D60's and a 1 ton MC and you need better brakes?

Are they bled?

i think you might need more info for some help
like
what the problem is
low pedal ?
no stopping power?
are you running stock mc?
do you still have the stock proportion valve in the lines?

you may not have the volume of fluid needed for caliper travel for the rear

I've seen alot of write ups on it and the stock yota booster should be fine. Did you make sure the push rod is going into the booster/MC deep enough? Its gonna have to push a little more fluid than it did with the stock toyota MC, but you should still be able to do it. Might even read some write ups on it just to see if you missed anything important.

Your saying that you have to really stand on the pedal to get it to stop?

Are you sure your booster is working? Did you blead the perportioning valve? My budys 4-runner was the same way untill he realized the valve had a breather on it too.
