Ok I am wanting to change to front and rear disc brakes and was wondering what and where to buy the parts? I have a spare 78 Front axle that has disc brakes but the calibers are shot and is in bad shape but the rotors are good.
This is a 72 FJ-40 so any help is greatly appreciated.

For the front,swap in the '78 front axle. Get some used calipers from a v-6 IFS toyota pickup. They are the same, and work with the vented rotors. For the rear check www.ih8mud.com for details. Also has good info on other front conversion choices... If the 78 front is really bad, convert the drums to disc(check ih8mud.com, again) on the 72 and use the chance to rebuild the knuckles too. HTH
