toyota 4x4 brake calipers.


Years are approx 1978-82. the trucks with the solid front rotors.

They are 4-piston calipers and bolt right on. No mods to the strut or the rotor.


If you go with the later truck calipers which are meant for vented discs then you have to change out to vented rotors on your Z. (from what car, I dont' know)


I don't think the Z31 brakes bolt up. I think those bolt onto the 280ZX but the calipers do not on those cars. So custom caliper mounts have to be made. (all for slightly larger rotors)

You can use vented discs from the 4 lug 84-85 n/a 300zx's and a half inch spacer between the caliper and the bracket. This is of course in conjunction with the toyota truck calipers, and the calipers weigh a crap ton more than stock too :(. peace.
