Pinion Brakes

I've been looking around, gathering up ideas. I like the 3/4ton pinion brake set up from DIY4x4. Anyone have any cheap ideas for pinion brakes or reg. brakes. I don't want to spend that stupid amount from other companies.

I boguth just the brackets from a guy on ebay. They were about $70-80 a pair. But you still have to buy 2 Toyota calipers and 2 mazda rotors from the parts house..................They work great

If you got the room do the DIY44 setup if you got the room.

If your buildin your rig low. Look into the yota cailper setup but swop to the yota rotor to. The mazdas have a thin centers. The centers well brake or bend over time. The mini truck rotors have like a 3/16 to 1/4 thick center. Plus ive seen alot mazada rotor chater and vibate.

But on pinion brakes make sure you can rotate then to the side of the houseing.

I read into that. You can also use mercury topaz rotors with no drilling, but crap, when you buy the mini truck calipers they are like $130 each. I wonder if you can use the cheap topaz rotors and a 3/4 ton caliper? I'll have to look into that.

Send me some part numbers and I'll see what is the cheapest.

Then go with the DIY4x4 kit. You just have to buy 2 chevy calipers. But remeber the yotas caliper are 4 piston. And chevys are one way push 1 or 2 piston calipers. And they well eat brake like crazy.

That why the better brake setup use double push caliper better braking and dont eat pads as fast. Im have 3 years on my pads so far.

There acouple e-bay setups out there to. or build your own setup its not that hard just make sure the bracket are 1/4in or thicker.

ya'll going to spend atleast $300 on brake's eazy.
