Help me ID my brake parts

Ftoy needs better brakes. Trying to get an idea what I already have.

You have a factory booster/master and front disc. Why do you need "better" brakes?

MC has been leaking between reservoir and the master cylinder. Looking to replace it and or the booster. Is this a dual diaphragm booster? I need better brakes because since I got the ftoy it has had a low pedal that improves with pumping, even after many correct bleeding attempts.

Thanks for the insight mtbrjon, would you happen to know which years these were factory?

okay so you need brakes that actually work, not better brakes that what you have. right?

i can't tell what calipers are those? are those the ifs calipers or the solid axle ones?

you want the ifs calipers

I like disc on all wheels. The Chevy 1/2 ton caliper conversion that a few vendors sell is cheap and easy. You'll want to get the Landcruiser MC for non-abs I think it's 1" bore. Like R2D2 said you want IFS front discs.

Looks like he has the IFS hub swap since the calipers are mounted on the outside of the knuckle ears, probably a LC rotor re-drilled to fit on the back of the IFS hub.

And what looks to be "regular" ifs calipers (not the bigger late model/v6 calipers)
