Update on this. I Finally got to drive the truck for the first time in 6 years. My brake upgrade seems to be working great. Its a little hard on the foot but I've gone away from power assist. Unfortunately I do not have the room for any brake booster without moving the master cylinder due to my choices for the front suspension. So I decided to eliminate both the brake and clutch master cylinders from under the hood to a tri-pack from Willwood. Also, re-plumbed the entire truck with new brake lines and stainless flex lines at the wheels. The Pedal if firm but doable and stops on a dime. I'm waiting for my roommate to get his D21 running again to see how this works on factory mastery cylinder with power assist. Hoping for something very encouraging.

Is this setup still working pretty well? I am about to have some 86 toyota hubs milled for my 96 and I would rather spend the money once on a decent brake system then buy stock toyota stuff and have to change it again.

I’m doing something similar with my son’s truck. We had the Toyota hubs machined to fit hardbody spindles. Then I bought 350z Brembo rotors and had the center bore enlarged to slide on to the back of the Toyota hub just like the factory Toyota rotors do. He also drilled and tapped holes in the rotors to allow me to install bolts from the front side of the hubs. I’ve got 300zx calipers to go on there. I’ll have to build a bracket for the caliper.

I’ll have to finish the 240sx IRS swap on the rear before I can install the front swap.

These are my son’s rotors being modified to fit the Toyota hubs by Michael (BlueHands) https://youtu.be/ZLlprAAAUAY

Nice! I meant to put I have a 89 hubs. I have a 86 rear end to go in the truck. I need to see if he is still doing the rotors like that. What year 300 zx calipers did you get?

90-96....not sure exactly which year as it was a long time ago that I actually bought them. There are different calipers which accept thicker rotors. Make sure you get the ones that fit on thick rotors.
