Toyota FX SJ AE101 Brake Upgrade Question.gadgit3?

ema1, Jan 25, 7:27am
I am wanting to know if the AE101 FX GT rear disc brake set up that I am contemplating fitting in my FX SJ in place of the drum brake set up while it's a straight swap pretty much, I am wanting to know if the FX SJ brake master cylinder/booster unit is the same as the FX GT master cylinder/booster unit!
The struts and hub units will be also swapped over using the FX GT units.
I will have all the FX GT rear suspension gear etc plus hand brake cable assy as well complete.available!
FX SJ being disc/drum brake set up and the FX GT being a 4 wheel disc type brake set up, hence my question here.

Hi John.
If both cars are AE101 then the struts will bolt in from the GT and the rest of the gear will fit also.

Yep both are AE101 just wanting to know if the brake master cylinder/booster from the disc/drum set up will operate the 4 wheel disc set up, or will I need to swap the master cylinder/booster to suit!

a master cylinderwith drum brakes should have a line pressure valve to the drum brakes.wheres a disc brake set up doesn't have a line pressure valve
