i'm not sure if an aftermarket rear shaft can outlast a rear rotor, but I guess we'll find out eventually.

I think he is thinking about just opening up the pilot hole on the rotor. Not turning the id of the hat.
I'm not a fan of custom wear parts.

2) shaft was easy to turn and test fit with the rotor, rather than test fitting the shaft into the rotor on the lathe = less stuff to measure
I have no desire to tap the brakes, i'm a mash pedal, attempt to control skid, release and drive around if required kind of person. maybe I've got enough master cylinder to make the takeup not an issue, if not then the caliper will get pins so they can float. but that is 'tomorrows' problem for now .

May I ask why you didnt lathe the inside of the rotor? Instead of the shaft. Thats what everyone does to the GM rotors to make them fit.
Did you guys with the soft pedal ever run the big GM master cylinder? Seems to help some.
Im a, tap the pedal before you brake, kinda guy anyway.

|crash||Ya I had the exact same scenario as dave and even tried residual valves with zero change.. On the street great...|
|02-10-2020 08:53 AM|
alright, well I guess i'll add "make pins" to list of things to do …… eventually
not interested in running a residual valve

|YotaAtieToo||You're running a caliper from a car that was never sold in the US?|

|smracing||I run a semifloat with fixed calipers with no issues. Setup is 1992 FJ80 9.5" semi-float, 2003 Sequoia rear rotors, 1993 Nissan Skyline GTR rear calipers.|

|YotaAtieToo||Isuzu has stock rear disc's with an ebrake, 6x5.5. Fwiw.|

|OOP'S||When I did mine with SA calipers and rotors they worked fine on the street, in the rocks it was a different story. As soon as I hit the rocks and started flexing I would have to pump the brakes. There was just enough movement to open the calipers a bit requiring pumping. I tried both a 3 pound and a 10 pound residual valve's to no avail!! I ended up using a floating caliper from a Honda Passport, rotors from some Mitsubishi SUV with homemade brackets. They work great!!!|

Swapped to floating calipers and never had an issue again.

2) it had a fixed caliper on it before, jeaton claims he didn't have issues.
3) the Toyota rear isn't the same as some other SF axles. The bearing sits flush against a shoulder on the shaft, then there is a spacer, then the snap ring, and the housing is bolted solid. So in theory it shouldn't have much room to move.
4) I never had any complaints about my drum rears
if it does, then i'll just make up some sleeves so that the caliper can float #ShitllBuff

I also used those an style soft lines with adapters on each end so even with domestic axles on a jap rig, I could carry one spare, or Rob the rear for a front.
Edit: wait, are you running fixed calipers on a semi float rear? I thought that was pretty much considered a bad idea?
|02-08-2020 07:53 PM|
|crash||I ran that setup many years ago and never liked it.|
|02-08-2020 07:16 PM|
a big reason I prefer hard line over SSbraided brake line everywhere? Hard line is easy to crimp off when you need to isolate a wheel
|02-08-2020 07:12 PM|
|YotaAtieToo||Worst case just strap the caliper to the frame and limp out. Rear brakes are over rated on a crawler|

|rockyota83||i wouldnt move them|
|02-08-2020 06:38 PM|
It is really, really close to being right. I've seen factory pads wore worse
so while I was (briefly) think about this as I was putting the tires on, I was thinking that if I end up having problems, I might just make a sleeve for it and then I could just mount it on a pin instead of clamping it with a bolt. it would techinically be floating then
also something I will likely never do :blkflipodd2:
|02-08-2020 06:32 PM|
prove me wrong
|02-08-2020 06:14 PM|
alright, some install pictures in case anybody is ever dumb enough to do this in the future, but is hesitant because there are no pictures
shaft post turning, lots of meat left there
studs that orielly had in stock, 1995 Toyota 4runner front studs
studs pressed in without issue
and everything all together using the pre-existing caliper mount. no real issues, though it seems like grinding a touch off the caliper ears would help. previous solid axle calipers had about a .090" shim (or so, I didn't measure or look closely)
the SA calipers were mounted about 1/16" too high, the IFS calipers using the same mounts are about 1/8" too high. I'm not sure that I will change the mounts....but maybe
certainly good enough for moving it in and out of the garage for a bit
