Toyoda Hilux/Landcruiser have compact 4-spot calipers, but they are heavy cast iron pieces.



NOTE: For light alloy 4-pot calipers, see Brake_Swaps#4-piston_Calipers

Hilux calipers are 4-pot Sumitomo S12 calipers, though heavy they are inexpensive and readily available high performance brake calipers.

4-pot calipers advantage
* allow for not very tall, but wide brake pads
* allow for small diameter wheel
* look cool

* heavy (unless made of alloy)
* expensive to repair
* not any better than sliding calipers

s12+8 calipers - stanza strut
2484_4c445d481c755.jpgPost 328383

Landcruiser 4-spot conversion on a Nissan C210 Skyline strut and running FWD 14 inch wheels for the offset.

On A10 Stanza strut, vented 200B rotors (were they available vented?) with hilux/landcruiser 4-spots machined slightly to centre them over the rotor.


Discussion: Rotor to suit Hilux caliper and stanza strut

Best rotor may be the 257mm number 40206-71E07 S13/S14/M11/C22/C33/C34/P10/WP11/R32/A31/U12/U13/U14 unit.
