Hi all,

I'm finally getting off my lazy but to make the V6 upgrade to my Runner, but need to get brake pads for the calipers. I'm not sure what year the calipers are and thought all of the V6 calipers/pads were the same, but the Einstein at the local parts shop can't get me pads unless I give him the specific year they were made, who made them and what color shirt he was wearing at the time.... any and all help is appreciated. thanks.

FYI - all calipers from 1990-1994 (4 cyl or V6) are the same...

What you are looking for are piston size, and there are SEVERAL versions that will fit your brakes but are different...

If you intend to use calipers with larger pistons, then you need to upgrade to the appropriatly larger M/C <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

thanks. I've already got the larger M/C and just have the brake pads left to get. so as long as the calipers are 90 to 94, any pad will work (V6 or 4 cycl)?

I got the V6 calipers from Dirty Harry, but just don't know what year they are. I sent him a note asking him what year they are, but haven't heard back yet. just trying to find a shop that has them in stock so I can pick them up tonight.

Geez a guy can't even go to lunch around here! <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> Sorry Josh, I don't know what year the calipers are, I bought them from a guy on this BB when I was going to use the Toyota front axle. I want to say that they are from a 91 but I am not positive. Sorry that I couldn't be more help. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

AFAIK - the pads are the SAME no matter the difference in caliper... I even think the IFS and solid axle pads will work too!

If you wanna know about the calipers - take a look at the pistons. They should be 4 large pistons, not 2 small and 2 large...

that would make it easier and cheaper <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> since I already have a spare set of IFS pads from my '87 I can try out. thanks for the info.

The mistery is over (for me at least). DRM got me double guessing what I have and sure enough - they're 4 cyl calipers. A quick trip to the parts store w/ caliper in hand found me a set of '89 4 cyl pads that fit. Now the only question is do I still bother putting in the larger M/C. Will this cause me to lock up whenever I hit the brakes, or just give me a "stronger" pedal feel.
