Post Paging fatDRM please pic up the white courtesy phone

I am starting my swap to toy axles, what did you do with the two brake lines in the rear that go into one on the Toy axles? Maybe some kind of a "T" <IMG SRC="smilies/idea.gif" border="0">

I have a 94', so I have a single brake line in the rear. Ask Poppyseed/cock, he has an older Zuk with the Toy stuff. But I don't see why you couldn't "T" it. Sorry not much help. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

mr. cock speaking... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> you can do whatever you want. if you have the 2 rear lines, you can use a T adapter to turn the 2 lines into 1 and then another T down on the axle and run the lines to the drums. then you have to change your braking to front to rear by switching the lines on the little box they all plug into (don't know the "real" name for it. it's right by the tranny- inside frame rail). or you can just keep the stock samurai braking setup, and run 2 lines down to the axle, and connect 1 to each drum.

here's a link that shows where th lines should be changed. you need to read through it to find it.

I'm going to remove the hardline junction or "t" on the axle, and then run a line to each axle hardline. I was going to bend a 90 in each harline so the fittings were facing forward. I was going to attach a small tab on the axle housing so the lines to the hardlines could be secured to the housing with those hose retainer clips.

I have a word of advice for you...

Here in TN our trails are mostly woods, which means you roll over a lot of tree limbs. Limbs which like to get flung at the rear axle by the front tire. Mounting the T fittings on the back of the axle, near the top edge of the "diff cover" keeps them up high when backing up, yet leaves them protected from rocks and sticks and such thrown at them by the front tire.

The stock toyota axle has a T fitting on top of the passenger axle tube and I've bent the lines when a branch (still under the front tire) wedged itsself against the T. Grrr...

Someday when I go to rear disks I'll move them there. I think that's the best place for them, but it's not an option for most american trucks, since that cover is removeable on their axles - but not on Toy ones.</font>
