Re: Picture of my rear Yota axle in the Zook
Bilduck wrote>Bill' are those sammy front rotors you used to build your rear brakes with? if so how did you do it? that looks very well built and i am currently rebuilding my yota axles and instead of dumping lots of money into the rear i can use parts i already have.
Ha Ha! that's the same boat I was in! The rear brake parts were all siezed up, one of the drums had a cracks from the lug holes to the center hole, there was like 32 moving pieces in there!! I said the heck with this and started trying to come up with a rear disk brake set up. I used some new Samurai rotors $18 each(for a clean slate), had them redrilled for 6 on 5-1/2" & had the Toyota ale shaft flanges turned down just a hair for the rotors to fit on $120, the Samurai front calipers & pads I had, got flex lines off a Tracker that I had (from between body & frame) but could have used front Samurai ones, the hard brake lines came from spare Zook parts, the caliper mounts were off the spare Samurai axle, bought a porpotioning valve & line lock from Spidertrax $50.00, & I put new speed bleeders on the calipers ($14.00) so total cost for rear disk brakes + line lock parking brake=about $200 to $250.
