Sky offroad ifs hub spacer question

So I have the sky off road ifs hub spacer on my truck and Iím trying to put this back together. What rotors were recommended with these? I vaguely remember fj vented rotors. I bought 86 rotors and they were wrong /wonít fit. Then I bought 85 solid axle ones They fit and bolt up,but they are thinner and not vented. The ones I had on were vented. Anyone else run these? They work great just donít remember what rotors fit and Iím running out of time to finish this.

It's in the toyota bible if you search. Pretty sure they are land cruiser vented rotors and you have to re-drill them.

Sky is still in business. just call them.

Brake Rotor Swap Ė Vented Front

Some folks like to swap out their solid rotors for vented rotors. This is a simple and somewhat inexpensive modification. I did this swap because my brakes were getting very hot and making some very annoying noises. If you can change your brakes you should not have any problem with this swap.

79-80 toyota mini axles -> Rotor bolts onto hub with 6 bolts and the wheel studs are pressed into the hub only. For Land Cruiser vented brake swap you must use 79-80 LC rotors.
81-85 toyota mini axles -> Rotor bolts onto the hub with 2 bolts and the wheel studs are prasses through the hub and is pressed into the rotor. For the Land Cruiser vented rotor swap you must use 81+ LC rotors. Uses Toyota 90942-02053, Dorman #610-264 or Napa 641-3126 wheel studs.

The Landcruiser rotors are wider because they are vented but otherwise fit right on with no other modification besides the need to run a IFS caliper.
The caliper comes in two flavors... one has two larger pistons and two smaller, and another has four pistons that are the same size. The ones with four large pistons would technically give you more braking force. I used the same pads because mine were still fairly new... so you don't need new pads unless yours are low.

Wheeled on Sat. It's been 10 years but I remember re-drilling something up there.

When I did mine in 98 and as best as I can remember, I did not have to drill, I think I replaced the rotors with FJ60 I think on the solid axle hubs and bolted the IFS calipers to the SA knuckles'. Hooked the lines up, bled them and away I went.

Very similar to mine. I got 90í fj80 vented rotors and they fit perfectly. No drilling. I had lost the info from sky and couldnít remember what fit. The Shitty thing is as Iím putting this back together I saw a few chips in the pinion gear. So, thatís great! I was not looking close enough the first time and really paid attention to the ring gear not the pinion. Oh well. Itís just money.
